Book Three of the Phoenix Realm
The Landers have so far foiled the sorceress Saranay’s attempts to lure their beloved bird-girl Avreal to the Eldest Realm. Desperate and thwarted, Saranay sinks to new lows to gain power over her prey.
Meanwhile, the conniving Spider King, newly apprised of his granddaughters’ ability to become hawks, threatens to reveal secrets that could plunge Cormalen into civil war if the Landers refuse his demands.
Faced with battle on two fronts, the Landers fight back with all the weapons in their arsenal, both mundane and magical. However, despite the help of old and new allies, Avreal, Dominic, and their loved ones soon find themselves confronting a terrible sacrifice.
