Some wounds are too deep to be seen and too malignant to heal.
Alora is dying and no one knows why. The unseen effects of Vindrake’s torture linger long after the physical wounds have healed. Damaged as she is, Alora must still use her gift to battle Vindrake’s evil, though she hastens her death by doing it.
Vindrake, deluded into believing his cause is holy, continues his quest to dominate Tenavae, this time attacking the very foundation of all knowledge, aided by a terrible new weapon, which falls into his hands. As some who are loyal to Vindrake infiltrate the ranks of Stone Clan, Kaevin’s life hangs in the balance.
But true love is expressed in the ultimate sacrifice—to lay down one’s life for a friend.
