Then there is the strange light that leads Isolde to the Veilrippers. She should have known that would be trouble. But it is the theft that takes plae at the dark moon that takes everyone by surprise.
Michael, Declan and Isolde must find the thief in order to ensure the safety of their unborn child. But where to begin to look? Declan seems intent on pinning the blame on one of Michael’s ex-lovers – if only she were alive. Who is the nun? Where is the Wicked Witch? And what magic was being woven by the singers in the wood?
When the dog barks, she sets in motion events that lead, inevitably, to the destruction of an elf and the judgement of two young magicians.
But Declan’s shapeshifting, Michael’s magic and Isolde’s judgements cannot rescue their unborn’s lost protection. To retrieve that, Isolde must overcome her fears and place her trust in two creatures that are neither Were nor human.
