Once a respected arranger of musical magic rituals, Sarya is in exile for a tragic mistake when she hears haunting new music in the wind, heralding terrible new forces at work in the world - or forces so old they have long been forgotten.
In search of answers, she returns to the musical Skola she left in disgrace. As she confronts her past mistakes - and resumes her complicated relationship with the gloriously talented singer Adan Muari - a beautiful, nameless man in chains appears in her dreams, begging her to sing the song that will free him, the song she heard in the wind. He could be a god with the power to save the world - or the power to destroy everything she knows and loves.
With time running out, Sarya risks everything to discover the chained man's identity and the meaning of his song before the world itself is torn apart.
