No Victory Comes Without Sacrifice.
Sophie Saterlee never thought finding herself would be so difficult. Her discovery of the ancient power she possesses has drawn the attention of Loring, a Tainted sorcerer who seeks to use her talents for his own evil ends. Despite multiple failed attempts to kidnap her from beneath the watchful gaze of her round-the-clock bodyguards, his obsession with her grows by the day.
Desperate for hope, Sophie seeks answers within her roots—answers beyond her Soul Seeing, beyond her relationships with fellow Magics Donovan and Caine. Under lock and key, she finds a shocking truth her own grandmother had hoped to hide forever.
Armed now with a vague understanding of where she came from and where she's headed, Sophie joins the Mother Coven in Diluculo, a hidden realm of solace for Magics. When the amplified energy of the gathering draws out more than the power within the attendees, though, she and her Coven face their deadliest test yet—and a loss from which they may never recover.
