But sometimes, life refuses to wait. Sometimes, it crashes in when it’s least expected.
At least, that’s what happens to Tessa when she bumps into a customer at the diner where she works and dumps food down his front.
Who knew fate could be so messy?
Life is no longer willing to wait for Tessa to step out of her limited world. Suddenly, she’s hearing the soul song of the person she’s destined to love. But things get complicated when she hears the songs of his best friends, too.
Is something wrong with Tessa’s heart, or is she really meant to fall for all of them? Will the lonely lullaby of her soul finally find an answer, and is it one she’s willing to embrace?
Her qualifications backfire when an elder from the north descends upon her home for a Choosing. He calls upon the Drowned Tower’s most sought after practitioners for a simple job that ends in blood, and then Sylvie’s blissful world erupts. She finds herself in the company of the Elementalist, Jacques Dace, an insufferable but deadly enthusiast of personal reform. Together, they’re swept into a spiral of powerful magic and ancient grudges. Where truth bends, stones whisper secrets of the past, and their home lies at the heart of what could very well be Ferus Terria’s next recorded war.
And for once, she is forced to choose a side, learning for herself what it means to master fate.

About the Author
Skye Smith is my pen name. My family convinced me not to use my real name because my stories are so critical of predator males. You'll understand and forgive me this as you fall in love with sweet Maya, my main character.
For those of you who like stories about vampires, witches, and magic, you won’t be disappointed by my very different, more realistic take on it all. My vampires are parasites wearing business suits. My witches are healers ignored by the modern world. My magic is based on aura’s, and everyone has felt or seen an aura at least once in their lives.
