Depressed and overwhelmed by learning the true meaning of her destiny as the Golden Mage as well as the major part she, along with Aidric, Keldan, and Aren, will play as foretold within the Prophecy of the Six, Allison despairs of ever picking up the pieces of her shattered life. Then to add insult to injury, the Temple of Seni sends representatives to Lamia to collect her in order that she may swear oaths to Seni as is required by divine law. The party is led by Eban, a Domnae full of an infinite amount of ambition and utterly despised by Aidric for reasons he refuses to confide to anyone. However, though suspicious of his motives, Eban’s the least of her worries as going to the Temple means leaving the protection of Lamia’s Shield with very little mage training under her belt at a time when hostilities with Mihr are at their highest, and rumors of a spy planted within the palace by Roderick have begun to arise.The wheels of fate are turning ever so quickly, and Allison feels the threads of her life becoming helplessly and dangerously entangled within its spokes, even more so now as she is exposed to the politics of the Temple, itself.
What would you do when there are no good choices?
The moment a bunch of men with guns kicked in the doors of her house, Avery Morgan knew her estranged father's gambling addiction had finally caught up to her family in the worst way. On the brink of doing something unspeakable to save her little sister from being taken, she is interrupted by the sudden arrival of Darrien Stathos, a business mogul whose true persona is rumored to be the lord of the criminal underworld known as Kairos. Darrien announces that he is also there to collect on a contract with Avery's father - for Avery.
As she struggles to find some normalcy within her life while living with an alleged crime lord and dealing with the constant harassment of two FBI agents, several disturbing observations about Darrien's eyes and the frightening, inexplicable ways he stops a couple of would-be assassins make Avery rethink her initial dismissal of some of the more outlandish gossip that questioned his humanity.
Avery thought she wanted answers, but the truth of Darrien’s identity will not only shatter the foundation of her understanding of reality but also reveal a disturbing and dangerous truth about herself.
The conclusion to the Golden Mage trilogy.With her bond to Aidric now stronger than ever, Allison feels that she has at last become a part of Lamia and is experiencing a measure of happiness despite the loss of Soren. However, after several moons of quiet, King Diryan’s spies bring news of a monstrous Mihran army marching towards Kemos, one of Lamia’s allied kingdoms, forcing the king to declare war on Mihr that very day. With the powers that be still unwilling to allow her to go beyond the Shield out of fear of the prophecy she still has yet to fulfill, Allison watches Aidric and her friends go off to war, feeling idle and useless. However, fate will not be denied, and soon Allison finds herself in the awful position of being forced to make a decision everyone, including herself, had prayed she would never have to make.
