Since his family's brutal murder at shape-shifter Silas de Mortaine's hands, Randwulf of Greycliffe has lived for revenge. His plan to lure de Mortaine out by pledging to hand over a fabled Dragon Chalice is crushed when he is shipwrecked in northern England.

Serena and her mother live quietly in a hidden grove for Serena's safety. Her gift, the Knowing, which allows her to touch someone and hear their thoughts and feel their emotions, would endanger her life in the outside world. So when she finds an injured man on the shore, she understands the risks of healing him.

But one touch and Serena is lost. Nothing will stop her from healing his body and soul, not even the truth behind his pain and the enemy she will help him face.

Power emanates from the pages of St. John's fabulous conclusion to a mesmerizing series. All the pieces hinted at in the other volumes come together as Rand and Serena's love gives them the means to overpower de Mortaine. Readers will come away feeling healed and uplifted and believing that good will always conquer evil as long as true love exists. SENSUAL (Dec., 384 pp., $6.99)
