Throughout Dirragion, rumours swirl of a dark sorcerer, a legion of monsters, and of the coming battle of good against evil. To a carefree girl in a remote village, it means little.
Young, beautiful and charismatic, Kalayin is too caught up in her happy life to give much thought to the wider world or to her own magical gifts. But when the world falls in upon her, and everything she has is torn away, she must seek out the means to fight back.
Guile and nerve can take her only so far. To embrace the dark may be the only way to win. Kalayin will make herself a heroine to some, a monster to others.
