In the quiet hours of closing up a shop in Merlyn's Market, Feraline Swift, a novice agent for Death currently floundering with the rediscovery of her magic, finds something unusual: A woman running from Death's enemy who entrusts Fera with her child—right before bursting into flames.
Swarmed with questions, Fera seeks answers no one wants to give. Who was the woman, where did she come from? Why did she self-incinerate, was it a curse, or was she a Creature? And why do the dark sorcerers want the child so badly?
About the Author
Nicolette Jinks was born and raised on a fish farm in Idaho, an intermountain state south of Canada and west of Wyoming. She began storytelling at an early age by terrifying her cousins with tales of stranded travelers entering haunted houses during terrible thunderstorms. Instead of taking up the family farm, Nicolette sold her cows to pay for a degree in English. She now writes fantasy novels in the UK.
