Great power commands a great price...
Magic has been forbidden in Caithe for 200 years and those born with
magic—the Lorngeld—are considered the devil’s children. The Lorngeld are
ruthlessly executed by the Caithan Church before they can be corrupted by
mind-plague—the volatile madness that afflicts untrained wizards. Only King
Kelwyn, artificially gifted with borrowed magic, is exempt from punishment. His
daughter may not be so lucky.
Impertinent and rebellious, Princess Athaya prefers to spend her time
gambling and drinking rather than courting would-be suitors. Discovering that
she is a natural-born wizard is an unwelcome surprise. But there are those who
believe it is a gift, and that an adept of Athaya’s inherent ability may be an
opportunity to finally lead the Lorngeld out of persecution.
Torn between loyalty to her kingdom, her duty to the Lorngeld, and her own
impulsive heart, Athaya must harness her burgeoning magic before it drives her
mad, and learn to wield its power before those who fear it—and those who envy
it—can destroy her.
