Summary of Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko:
Tarisai has always longed for a family; she was raised in isolation by a mysterious, often absent mother known only as The Lady. The Sent to the capital of the Empire to compete with other children to be chosen as one of the Crown Prince’s Council of 11. If she’s picked, she’ll be joined with the other Council members through the Ray, a bond deeper than blood.
Tarisai wants the belonging, but The Lady compels her to kill the Crown Prince once she gains his trust. Nothing is more important than loyalty. But what if you’ve sworn to protect the one you were born to destroy?
