To stop a corrupt sorcerer from acquiring more power, shapeshifter Maddyn is tasked with preventing a magical shrine from falling into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, no one seems to know where the labyrinth can be found. Or if it even exists. Except for a spirited novitiate that keeps turning up in unexpected places and distracting Maddyn from his task.
After a year with the Order, Yve is still struggling to fit in. She'd joined to be part of something bigger, to make a difference. Spending days in prayer and maintaining the Temple garden isn't quite what she imagined, but she's determined to prove herself. Which is why, no matter how much she wants to help Maddyn, her vows to the Order come first.
But Maddyn's presence stirs up trouble and leads to the assassination of the Matriarch of the Order. A quirk of destiny leaves Yve with the Matriarch's title and a gift of prophecy that elevates her far above anyone's expectations. It also leaves her and Maddyn temporarily bound by magic. Both struggle to balance duty and their growing, impossible attraction in the midst of a search for a deadly assassin whose dark magic could destroy everything.
