For Matilde of the House of Svanaten, accession to the Turasi throne is long overdue. But her imperious grandmother remains reluctant to hand over power. When Matilde's mysterious aunt, Helena, turns up for the Turasi's most important festival, suspicions abound. Why has Helena suddenly appeared, accompanied by the despised Ilthean? And what of the Ilthean soldiers massed at the southern border? Matilde is soon struck by a vision warning of doom. And it isn't long before a powerful enemy strikes at the very heart of power, leaving a trail of death and destruction in his wake. After narrowly surviving the conflagration that shatters her world, Matilde must pit herself against her family's conqueror in a battle not just for the throne, but for her very existence.
