Now, something is killing them before they can be born.
When Iminique Demascus senses a nameless evil striking at the unborn royal children, she has to make a choice. A noblewoman and a healer in a world where aristocrats and mages belong to different castes, she is forbidden by her father to ever heal. Breaking his dictate, she saves a single girl child.
No one thanks her. Neither the child’s parents nor the people want a girl, reviling her for surviving when the males perished. Left as the princess’s sole protector and faced with adversity and hostility from nearly every quarter, Iminique allies herself with the wizard who once dragged her to the brink of death and then inexplicably let her go; a wizard who has his own secret agenda and casts spells that should be impossible.
Meanwhile, in the south, a young sorceress falls prey to an ancient enemy, one weaving his own plans for bringing mankind to its knees.
For centuries, the walls have protected the seven demesnes from an ancient enemy. But now the spells are weakening and no one cares, thinking that the foe the walls were erected to keep out is nothing but myth.
The shadow-hungry are real, though, and they are preparing for battle.
Now only three women in a city of mages can stop it.
Lysium, a guild slave trapped in a world of deceit, dances on a magical stage while stars drift from her hair and whisper secret persuasions into the minds of her audience. Every evening she chronicles her memories, because every night a shadow comes who steals them away.
Melynda strives to raise an army of mages in secret, but one she loves is stolen from her by the man she believed her ally, dividing her heart in two.
Essence, a shunned sorceress, remains the last one holding up the walls and the city’s greatest hope, but her own loneliness traps her in the web of a mysterious mage whose intentions are shrouded in secrecy, a man who brings her the one thing she cannot resist: love.
Three women fight on the same side, but the battle lines are drawn in the wrong places, unions are made with the wrong allies, and when the enemy strikes…
Not one is prepared.
