A cursed omen who dreams of death. A girl who calls fire with a wish. A group of resistance fighters who need the king to die.
Prophecy has brought them together, but will it destroy them too?
As a homeless orphan, shunned for having the gift, Rachael knows how to survive. The visions of people dying are only hers to see. The shadows are her safety. When Cephy comes into her life, having a friend who is as feared by the villagers as Rachael seems too good to be true.
After a fiery incident, the villagers call on the White Guard to execute Rachael and Cephy. Together, they flee into a world they know nothing about. In the unknown await a Mist Woman, a prophecy, and a young rebel who sounds sincere... but in Rachael's experience, no one ever is.
The Sparrows--fighters of the resistance--believe in her because a prophecy names her, but can she be the leader they need when she can't control her own magic?
Rachael knows the struggles the gifted endure all too well. Perhaps it's time she stopped hiding and fought back.
If you like plot twists, kickass heroines, and dark destructive magic, then you'll love the first instalment in this page-turning epic fantasy trilogy.
