This romantic fantasy is the first book in a trilogy that promises to be a thrilling epic adventure. A spellbinding plot and smooth-flowing narrative draw the reader into a world of myth and magic. Smith–Ready has created memorable characters and given them almost insurmountable challenges to overcome. The protagonist is an incredibly strong female who confronts her deepest fears to embrace her destiny. As she struggles to accept her unique abilities, readers will feel her pain, weep for her losses and cheer her triumphs. Lovers of fantasy are about to embark on a great new series.

In the village of Asermos, everyone has animal magic. But
Rhia denies her animal spirit because she's afraid of becoming a Crow woman and using her power to
comfort the dying.

When her mother dies, Rhia is
overwhelmed by guilt because she's unprepared to help her cross over.
She knows it's time to accept her
transformation, but it will mean
leaving behind all she holds dear. (Luna, Nov., 480 pp., $14.95)
