Raised in the Warlands as assassin, spy, and slave for Lord Darmouth, Leesil managed to escape. Now with newfound purpose in the company of his beloved Magiere, Leesil returns to confront the sins of his past and uncover the fate of his elven mother and human father.
Unable to turn him from this dangerous course, Magiere follows Leesil into the darkness of the Warlands, prepared to slaughter any who try to take him from her. But Magiere's own past may well pose a more deadly threat. Two creatures of unfathomable power continue to stalk her--one who believes she's the key t his salvation, and one who seeks to destroy her...and all those she loves.
