The Souleater Azdrefel is banished to the Everdark once again, but the cost was higher than Archmage Randrick alt Harbinnen and Perian Dawnstar of the Drevnya anticipated. When Hasdrugon, the Estlini high priest, leads an army into Oestrand, both are ready to take up the reins of war to stop him. Then Perian is kidnapped by a traitorous Mage and given to Hasdrugon, who has more than one plan for the woman he is determined will be his mate. As Randrik and a dedicated group of magic users dare to try and rescue her, Perian begins to discover the truth about herself, a journey of discovery that could spell the end of everything she believed was true.
