Born with the mark of the scribe, Raela is bound to a magical book that will help guide her people underground to escape the invasion of their homeland. As the prophecy warns, this event signals an even worse doom on the horizon.
But the book that promises to sustain her life continues to divide her heart.
Her fierce lover, Rebial, is a man of the woods. He believes the tribe’s aging seer has misconstrued the prophecy. Unfairly denied his warrior status, he vows to stay behind and protect the sacred forest they call home.
With the burden of fate resting on the whims of smoldering passions, will their choices smother or enliven flames?
