Publisher's Summary

An ancient prophecy. A young woman's destiny.
Lorness Carol, coming of age in the kingdom of her warlord father, Lord Rafel, aspires to wield magic. But she's also unknowingly become the obsession of Kragan, an avenging wielder as old as evil itself. He's waited centuries to find and kill the female prophesied as the only human empowered to destroy him. However, dispatching the king's assassin, Blade, to Rafel's Keep, ends in treason. For Blade arrives not with a weapon but rather a warning for the woman he's known and loved since he was a child. With a price on his head, Blade flees - as Carol and her family are urged away on their own desperate route of escape.
Now, traversing the lawless western borderlands, Carol struggles to understand the uncanny magic she possesses and must learn to master. Though separated, Carol and Blade are still united - not only by the darkness pursuing them both but by a quest toward destiny, revenge, and the revelations of an ancient prophecy that signal the ultimate war between good and evil.

Exciting First Episode in the Series

I loved this book but am impatient for the next book in the series. Thankfully it is scheduled for release in early January 2018. Caitlin Davies does a marvelous job bringing to life the characters and magic in this new world.

Good story but ‘robotic’ narration...

Interesting story and character development over course of the book. I was convinced that some of the narration was ‘siri - like’ and artificially generated - pace, inflection, cadence etc unnaturally consistent to my untrained ear. I’ll probably reach for the Kindle rather than audible book for the second in the series.
