Awyer composes. He draws his hand along my spine. “If you do not exist, then I will not exist either. Make me as you are. Make me unseen. We can be together then.”
To the rest of the world, Grim is nothing more than a shadow. But to her ward, seventeen-year-old Awyer, Grim is a faerie-like being with the gift of foresight and hair that darkens as day wanes to night—the only one who knows the truth of the stolen magicks swimming through her ward’s veins.
When outside magicks attack the enchanted kingdom of Eldrade for the first time in a thousand years, it’s up to Grim to propel Awyer forward along his destiny—to deliver smuggled power to the Golden Lands where his sphinx ancestors reside—and to guide him through a world of witches, zombies, and necromancers, picking up those she sees in her visions of Awyer’s future along the way.
But everything Grim knows about being a faerie will be put to challenge when Awyer begins to show signs of affection for her—a thing unheard of between faerie and ward. In a poetic tale of warring magicks, fantastical lands, and desire battling duty, Grim has a long way to go before she’ll understand what it means to be human.
