Beyond Ixia, the roots of magic run deep…
Found guilty of possessing magical powers and sentenced to death in Ixia, Yelena Zaltana must flee to the southern lands and seek sanctuary with her family. A family she hasn’t seen in fourteen years and who could be her only hope of survival.
But Sitia is unfamiliar, and she’s treated with suspicion and even hatred by the people she thought she could trust – including her own brother.
Then Yelena is invited to Sitia’s capital. In the Citadel, she’ll have the chance to hone her magical abilities under the tutelage of a Master Magician. As she learns the laws of magic, Yelena also discovers there are those who will do anything to break them. And when a rogue magician targets young female victims, Yelena must put her life at risk to stop him.
Will her newfound magic save Yelena, or will it be her undoing?
