They think she will die . . . But they are wrong.
To prove herself to her father, Thessaly performs the same magical initiation that killed her mother so many years ago. But despite all expectations, she is surviving and gaining dangerous power. When she loses control and burns a man alive, she is exiled: from the court, her father’s fleet, and her family. Now, she’s living in a remote village where everything is vastly different from what she’s known her whole life. And she can’t go back until she can control the magicks running through her veins.
Will she be able to find someone to teach her, so far away from society? Because she needs a teacher if anyone around her is going to be safe. And in the process, is it possible she can help the folk of Minetown solve a deadly problem of their own?
