Quatrième de couverture
Kyra was a journeyman wizard, readying for her final testing before the Council. But it was no mere case of nerves that had started twisting her magic. Something sinister was weaving portents of doom into even the simplest of her spells. Something fearful was invading her dreams with images of frightful evil. And Kyra woke to the chill certainty that her young sister Alix was soon to marry—and soon to die.
So Kyra departed the Citadel of Wizards before she could win a place among her peers, to face the family that had disowned her, long years before.
Her father's rage, the venomous rivalries of her family's enemies, and the Inquisition itself awaited Kyra in the place she had once called home. To save her sister, she would have to outface or outwit them all. Then she must defeat a still deadlier foe—if only she could find it!
