A spellbinding tale of magic, betrayal, and romance-and the consequences of each...
Lucas "Black Gage" Sinclair, so-called for the mysterious, magic scribed, black glove he wears on his left hand, is a famous pirate captain known across the lands and sea. Gage finds himself on the run from the law of the rival kingdom Athium, and his only hope of escape with his crew is through the treacherous Dark Forest; a place where magic is impotent and no one who enters comes out alive-unless Clara "The Guide" Fox braves the forest with you. Tasked with transporting a mysterious item through the forest, Gage manages to acquire Clara's services, and as the group travels through the woods and avoids its many life-threatening dangers, Gage and Clara develop a deep connection-but all is not as it seems. They both carry dark secrets that threaten to jeopardize not only their travels but also their lives.
As their journey concludes and Gage delivers the cargo to the Scarlet Queen as promised, betrayal plays upon betrayal and secrets reveal more secrets. Gage and Clara find themselves questioning their loyalties-and their hearts-in a world where both can easily be bought.

This book was so fantastic! It was such a fast-paced book, I could not put it down. I really enjoyed O'Ryan's style of writing. I was intrigued by all of the creatures from the Dark Forest that were introduced. And I was obsessed with the chemistry between Clara and Gage! Fingers crossed a sequel comes out very, very soon!
