An action-packed standalone adventure moving from present-day Paris to medieval Morgravia, the world of Fiona McIntosh's bestselling QUICKENING series.
the story begins in Paris and moves swiftly into the otherworld of Morgravia.

Rene has been unable to help her and believes that her panic attacks, depression and inability to communicate can be helped through the writing process. When Angeline is under hypnosis, Gabe hears a frantic voice in his mind and realises it must be Angeline's. Consequently, Gabe is the target of an attempt on his life ... Angeline tells him he must kill her and absorb her spirit which will then enable her to take them through a portal to the dangerous lands of Morgravia.Only there can she prove that he is the scrivener who can interpret the language of the gods ... and save a queen and a land from destruction.
Great Read... Once again
Another great book by McIntosh, I was hesitant venturing into something with a modern setting having fallen in love with the Percheron, Valisar and Trinity series. Of course, an empty fear, glued to this as I was with the others.
