"If we turn our backs on who we are, who knows what danger we ourselves may become?"
Determined to discover the truth of her heritage, Kira resumes her journey following the events of The Healer's Legacy. Together with Milos, and accompanied by her loyal companions, Kelmir and Vaith, she sets sail for the strange land across the Faersent Sea.
But when she arrives in her mother's homeland, what awaits her is not the welcoming arms of loving relatives, but a land filled with political strife, dark intrigue, and a family secret that could shatter everything.
"This is the second book I've read by Sharon Skinner - this is the sequel to the first book of hers which I read, The Healer's Legacy - and like the first, this one's going on the Keep Forever shelf." - Theoden Humphrey
"Another amazing book from Sharon Skinner! This book is the 2nd in the trilogy of Kira's saga and it is just as good as the first, "The Healer's Legacy", which is saying a lot!" - Dawn V.
"The second book of the series was just as fantastically well written as the first. Mrs. Skinner has a special gift for writing characters that are so easy to get attached to, while at the same time giving us at least one that we love to hate." - Birbitt
