The world is dark, divided, and in desperate need of a hero.
Bandits destroyed Skye's home and sent her running into the hands of a power-hungry despot. Now, with the government burying itself in bunkers underground and technology lost to all but a sacred few, the hunt for a weapon of incredible magic has begun.
And the hunters have their sights set on Skye.
One is a powerful sorcerer who wants her to join the fight. All she has to do is accept his gift: a sword possessed of legendary magic that is both terrible and frightening.
A sword that can turn her into that hero.
That is...if can she wield its power without losing herself to it…
Fans of Faith Hunter, Helen Harper, and Ilona Andrews have already begun to sink their teeth into this gritty fantasy adventure.
