When Lucien is entrusted to her care she discovers the startling horror of what he might become and the truth about Tamlyn too. Can Lucien be spared his fate or is he doomed to become like Coyle? And Tamlyn can he be trusted can he be loved and can he love in return? Silvermay's heart will not give him up but what happens when devotion becomes a weapon in the hands of the ruthless?
