As a child, Nika Madison survived an attack by the Synestryn, but was left mentally damaged and dying. Nika has recovered in part thanks to Theronai warrior Madoc; however, that doesn’t mean that anyone believes her claim that her presumed-dead younger sister Tori is still alive and in the hands of the Synestryn. Determined to prove her claim, Nika charts a dangerous course that will place her in the path of the sgath. Madoc continues to fight his intense attraction to the damaged Nika, for it does not appear that she is a compatible mate, and his soul is nearly gone. Nika, however, refuses to accept that judgment and will fight against all odds to save both Madoc and Tori. (SIGNET, Nov., 368 pp., $7.99)
