At the end of the first book of Kurland's Nine Kingdoms trilogy, the heroine suffered a near-fatal attack. This middle chapter has an unconventional courtship where the stakes are not only emotional, but could chart the course of history. Layers of secrets are peeled away, leaving characters struggling with the revelations. Lyrical storytelling with high-octane adventure, you can't ask for more!

Miach, archmage of Neroche, dug himself into a hole by not revealing his identity to Morgan earlier. Now he fears he may have lost her for good when she retreats into the magic-less castle of Gobhann to heal. With the kingdom under attack from Lothar, Miach gambles that by winning back Morgan's trust and love he can gain her help for the upcoming fight, as it appears that Morgan, who hates magic, has dark secrets buried in her past that may hold the key to winning this relentless war.
