The Codex of Her Scars by Derek Prior
Mad, cursed by the gods, or a possessed by a demon? Whichever it is, Tey Moonshine’s scarred flesh holds the secret to real sorcery, and threatens to lift the lid on the rulers of Sorcerers’ Isle.
“High quality storytelling with great characters and a relentless plot.” (Mitchell Hogan, author of A Crucible of Souls)

Injured in a freak accident, Tey Moonshine is good for only one thing: an apprenticeship as a clan sorcerer.
But under the scrutiny of her new master, she can no longer keep her secret concealed. For years now, guided by a demon that lurks within, Tey has cut magical symbols into her flesh.
As her training begins and her powers awaken, death creeps from the shadows, and Tey draws unwanted attention from across the sea.
