Description

Prisha’s past is but a memory and her teen years mark the beginning of her life’s intriguing journey. At seventeen, she meets the suave and sensuous Ajaz Markos. His whiskey eyes and killer smile are enough to melt her heart and break it. Their desire for each other is mutual, as is their love until he casts her aside.

Prisha leans on her best friend Nik to mend her broken heart. But neither know that she’s a danger to him and their future together. Then Ajaz is back and it isn’t coincidence.

Prisha and Ajaz are older, wiser and thrown together as part of a larger, Machiavellian plan. Armed with mystical powers, they must fight indestructible entities and face their legacies to save an innocent life. One thing Prisha knows for sure, her bloodline is both a boon and a curse.

But how will she defeat the most powerful force of them all? What price will she have to pay? Will Prisha and Ajaz come out of the ultimate battle of their lives unscathed? Will she rise to protect what’s hers?

Hi, I’m Prisha and this is my story.

Being haunted by a ghost isn’t fun, it’s downright creepy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a regular person. The haunting is an add-on. Only she wasn’t a ghost, she was something more sinister, ancient and ordained by my bloodline.


My chalky memories got me through my childhood but it was my teen years that marked the beginning of my life’s intriguing journey.
At seventeen, I met Ajaz Markos. Suave, sensuous, a heartbreaker; Ajaz Markos is every teen girl’s dream. His whiskey eyes and killer smile are enough to melt my heart and break it. Our desire for each other is mutual, so is our love. At least that’s what I thought, till he cast me aside.


Heartbreaks are never easy, but my best friend, Nik, helped me move on. I wish he hadn’t, for I did not understand then, I was a danger to Nik.

Meeting Ajaz again years later wasn’t a coincidence. He was the only one who could defend me from my fears. We were older, wiser and thrown together as part of a larger plan. Together we must fight indestructible entities and face our legacies to save an innocent life. One thing I know for sure, my bloodline is both a boon and a curse.

But how will I defeat the most powerful force of them all? What price will I have to pay? Will Ajaz and I come out of the ultimate battle of our lives unscathed? Will I rise to protect what’s mine?

Come, live my life through my eyes with ‘True Rising–Mark of the Defenders’.
