Just as Alex is finding her place with Ealythia and learning more about herself with the help of Jaze, the Council sends him away to Santara on a dangerous mission. As Alex struggles to find a way to train without notifying the Council, she learns more about her past, and her strange connection with Jaze. Meanwhile, Jaze is in grave danger, the king’s death threat still looming over his head.
Desperate to keep Alex safe behind the veil of Ealythia, Jaze begins blocking his thoughts from Alex’s mind, creating a void between them that threatens their relationship. With the king’s men running rampant throughout the cities of the world Alex once called home, and the Council’s actions becoming more and more suspicious, both Jaze and Alex are forced to make hard and fast decisions to save those they love most. Will Jaze return from Santara? And if he does, what if Alex isn’t the same girl she was when he left?
