Shinn brings an array of fascinating characters to life and imbues them with purpose in the third book in the Twelve Houses series. While the plot is slightly predictable, it manages to shed new light on established characters and advance the overall story arc.

King's Rider Justin has been sent to the town of Neft in Nocklyn to monitor the activities of the Lumanen Convent, whose leader believes that her goddess, the Pale Lady, wants all mystics destroyed. While there, he meets Ellynor, a young novice from the convent.

Forbidden to speak to Justin, Ellynor disobeys. She has worshipped the Dark Mother her entire life and ascribes her mystical powers to her goddess. Ellynor and Justin will risk heir families, their secrets and their lives for each other.
