"Carey's fans will enjoy the straightforward heroics and plotting" - Publisher's Weekly
Moirin has returned to find the royal family broken. Wracked by unrelenting grief, King Daniel is unable to rule, while Prince Thierry is halfway across the world. And three-year-old Princess Desirée is a vision of her mother: tempestuous, intelligent and fiery, but desperately lonely, and a vulnerable pawn in a deadly game of shifting political allegiances.
As tensions within the court mount, King Daniel asks that Moirin become Desirée's oath-sworn protector, but then dire news arrives from overseas. The spirit of the dead Queen visits Moirin in a dream and bids her undertake an impossible quest - one which could take her to the other side of the world.
Another spectre from the past has returned to haunt Moirin as well: her manipulative former lover. Years ago, she was forced to help him summon demons in his quest to acquire mystical powers. It led to a disaster that nearly killed them all. And now, in the New World, it may still have the chance to do so...
