An ancient goddess grows more desperate to escape the bounds that keep her imprisoned. . .
A man whose lands have always been fertile and bountiful even in times of strife and drought. . .
The woman whose secret could destroy his dreams and force him into the waiting hands of the evil one..
Tolan's family has had a strong bond with the farmlands he tends and he keeps the truth of it secret. For generations, his ancestors worshiped the ancient gods and oversaw their lands. Now, darkness is gathering, and Tolan is drawn into an evil nobleman's plot to destroy his enemies. When his lover Elethea is targeted, too, he must choose one side or the other.
Elethea's healing skills are known widely, but when the arrival of strangers cause the power in her blood to surge, she discovers it is more than simply knowledge of the healing arts. The only one she cannot seem to heal is herself and her inability to give Tolan the children he needs is keeping her from committing to him and to a future together.
Now, as the evil one gathers its minions and threaten all that Tolan and Elethea hold dear, will they choose the side of humanity or choose the enemy who even now holds their future in his hands?
