She returns home a few days later to attend a ball hosted by her parents, only to be snatched off the street by a powerful man who wants to use her as a pawn to satisfy a grudge against her family. But just as she manages to escape, a girl presses a choker into her handand it seems the necklace has special powers. As bizarre events begin occurring, Rose acts strangely and Lucille is plagued by visions and a haunting voice. When she finally returns to school, a twist of fate soon has her bonding with three rivals who share the same uncertain future. Now all they have to do is determine who they can trust as a complex mystery begins to unfold.
In this exciting young adult tale, a teenage girl and her unlikely friends embark on a magical journey to solve their destiny where they discover danger, challenges, and most importantly, themselves.
Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
