Kaelin discovers that she has incredible power at her fingertips: the power of blood magic. She’s capable of both healing and destroying. A few drops of her blood bring an abandoned baby back from the dead.
As she struggles with her newfound power, Kaelin meets an alluring stranger with eyes unlike any Kaelin has ever seen. She finds his blue eyes with a ring of lilac around the pupils absolutely mesmerizing. However, he may have entered her life with more than a romantic relationship in mind.
Stepping through a door in a decaying factory, Kaelin falls through a portal into a frightening world. There, a sickly woman with coal-black eyes rimmed in emerald green confronts her. She demands the return of “the child” and threatens consequences if her order is not obeyed.
As Kaelin hides the abandoned baby from the authorities and runs from those who threaten her, she relies on the man with whom she’s fallen deeply in love to save her. The question remains: Is he there to help her or betray her?
In the Land of Faerie, the Unseelie are dying from the spread of a fatal disease. Only the child with special blood can save them.
