Mere minutes after Catriona Lindensen buries her uncle, the chase begins. The Phasmatis wastes no time hunting down their fabled Endurvakning Stelpa, but they’re not the only ones. Cat’s mind becomes a battleground as a new entity creeps ever closer promising safety and protection—at a cost:
Card Thomas’ Glamour must fall.
There's a war on. Card struggles with his own demons that grow stronger and stronger in the fight against the Phasmatis and makes a decision that forever alters his relationship with Cat. Matt's true allegiance is called out and Hannah becomes more than she ever thought she would be—or wanted to be. We meet a new galdranorn boy with a strange sparking aura and a heart that could change the game. And Cat finally realizes what she needs to be to protect those around her, but it may spell out her own death.
