It’s in this small town that Daire meets and falls for Dace, a boy who haunts her dreams. The two share a forbidden love: Dace is allied with the Richters, a family of evil sorcerers Daire is destined to destroy.
Dace and Daire must work together to stop the Richter family before they completely disrupt the balance of good and evil in the world. But one of them might have to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to fulfill their shared destiny.
