Sometimes allies can turn deadly.
The only thing worse than waking up as the prisoner of your mortal enemy is not knowing he’s your mortal enemy when you do. While the charming man who claims to be her husband arouses nothing but suspicions, the dreams she has of an Elflord who supposedly died long before incite longing. And when at last the clouds clear away, what’s revealed is terrifying—war, murder, and the grim prophecies about an apocalypse called the Eleusis. The Elven Realm needs allies, for not even the fabled power of their Queen is enough to protect her people. When the gods and their prophets are barred from the mortal realm, Tamsen’s search for an alliance leads her to make a dangerous bargain with an agent of Chaos. She must destroy the agents of the Eleusis, but in order to do so, she may condemn herself to a terrible fate.
