In a time nearly ancient, before a brave Scottish princess defied her mother, a young woman has lost everything.

Except for her unexplainable talent for magic.

Now Magda's being hunted, and in her attempt to survive, loneliness and desperation take control.

Until she meets someone who offers her a chance at happiness, at normalcy, at the fullness of life. Then she discovers something wrong, so shockingly wrong with this hopeful future, and she must make a harrowing decision to ensure her survival.

And she will have to draw on all her magic to do it.

Actions have repercussions -- Magda knows this better than anyone else -- and with her magic, she will ensure everyone else learns that lesson as well.


I loved the imagery in this story. I felt as if I was there.
This book was very vividly creative in the descriptions, superb writing, a great story with familiar characters! 
 There were moments where I was on the edge of my seat. The perfect amount of action, angst, and more all in in all-consuming package. 
This series is phenomenal and the author has done a great job of bringing to life characters we love.
