In 1816 England, the hidden world of the Other is threatened as ancient magics and new desires collide...
After her father's murder, Mariah Penkevil renounced her magical abilities, seeking only to find a quiet place within the normal world. But normal is about to be shattered when a man claiming she's the latest reincarnation of a dark faery crashes into her life.
Raised by the Fey, Rhyse MacAillse has crushed his humanity beneath a cold arrogance. What little warmth remains to him is all for his foster-mother, Sìle. Now injured and near death, her only hope for recovery lies with Mariah and her inherited abilities.
But it's a race against time, because while Rhyse fights to convince Mariah to use her powers, a ruthless Other bent on vengeance will stop at nothing to find and destroy them both.
