Fate has brought reluctant mage Ruithneadh of Ceangail and dreamweaver Sarah of Doire together on a quest to collect and destroy all of the horrifically dangerous spells belonging to Ruith’s infamous father, Gair. Sarah’s ability to see Gair’s missing spells has come to her in the form of a map. As Sarah and Ruith continue on their quest, they find themselves gaining unexpected companions who may be allies or foes … for the lure of power is intoxicating and dangerous. What is becoming frighteningly obvious is that someone is manipulating the trail of spells, putting all the kingdoms in dark peril. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 320 pp., $15.00)
