The Shamers Daughter by Lene Kaaberbol

The Shamer's Daughter (The Shamer Chronicles) by Lene Kaaberbol

This is the first book in the Shamer series. This book is very different from other fantasy novels that I have read. It was interesting, but I didn't love it. There wasn't anything in particular that was offensive, but I wouldn't recommend it for the younger readers.

The shamer has the ability to look into a person's eyes and cause them to feel unbelievable guilt. When she is held captive, her daughter, endowed with the same ability, attempts to rescue her. But how can they face a man so evil that he is incapable of feeling guilt?
