BOOK TWO of the award-winning Conjurer Fellstone series that began with DREADMARROW THIEF and ends with KINGSHACKLE.
Desperate to cure her mother of the delusion that she's a bird, Tessa appeals to the conjurer lord in neighboring Blackgrove. Everything goes wrong, however, when he takes Calder hostage and refuses to help until Tessa and Ash bring him the Gravenwood. They set out to steal this magical tablet while romance blossoms between them.
But none of them may survive the treachery of the rising despot — unless Tessa can conquer her inner doubts and unlock the secret to becoming a true conjurer.
"Grounded, likable characters with complex emotions anchor this excellent series installment." -Kirkus Reviews
