A strange darkness is growing in the land. Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea. She lives a quiet life there, always waiting for her sea-captain mother to return from long-voyages.
But then, Fate knocks on her door in the form of two bloodied and weary travelers, who tell Coryane that she is the last of an ancient lineage - with the power to save the world from destruction.
You see, a man who would burn everything to the ground is raising an army unlike any seen before, bent on uprooting the foundations of reality itself. With poison in his heart and a stolen sword in his hand, he'd break the world if that's what it took to rule it. And only Coryane can stop him.
Alongside an unlikely group of reluctant allies, Corayne finds herself on a desperate journey to complete an impossible task, with untold magic singing in her blood... and the fate of the world on her shoulders.
