Hidden Power: Princess of Kerehba Book One, by Samantha Harris.
Rachel was crazy. That’s what everyone told her. She was seeing and hearing things that no one else could. That’s the definition of mental illness, isn’t it?
While confined to a mental hospital, she meets an orderly that actually treats her with respect and kindness. She feels so comfortable with him that she tells him about the hallucinations that she hides from her doctor. Hallucinations of fighting monsters, flaming swords, and magical powers.
She soon learns that her hallucinations are actually memories, reminders of a forgotten life. Rachel must quickly remember that life so that she can return home to Kerehba and save her people from a madman who has been oppressing the land and enslaving its citizens for close to 700 years.
The closer she gets to the evil she must fight; the more blood is spilled and the more obstacles she must overcome. Many support her in her cause, but ultimately the responsibility of fighting the evil madman is hers and hers alone. Will her power be strong enough to defeat someone who can level mountains?
The world demands balance….
…The great goddess Durga demands it at the tip of her sword.

Lark is a simple yoga instructor but has always had a terrifying ability to see the creatures of the night who walk among humans. She knows her life is in danger if she lets her talent be known.
Nobody saw the great goddess coming until the balance tipped too far, and then it was too late.
Too late for the vampires and too late for Lark to slink back into the shadows.
The goddess Durga has risen. All those who defy her will pay the price, and Lark will be the hand that wields her sword.
