They took our magic. They tried to bury us. Now we rise. Zľie Adebola remembers when the soil of Ors̐ha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zľie's Reaper mother summoned forth souls. But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zľie without a mother and her people without hope. Now Zľie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zľie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. Danger lurks in Ors̐ha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zľie herself as she struggles to control her powers-and her growing feelings for an enemy.
