Hope only fades if you allow it to…
Now that Talon Haraway has been taken captive by the Arcaians, Ambry knows it’s only a matter of time before he is executed. But to make matters worse, she must go against her once-best-friend, Gwynn Hawkes, to free him. Whether Ambry likes it or not, drinking those tears changed Gwynn. Not only is she subjecting her kinsmen’s magic, but with Tyrus preoccupied with his upcoming war, Gwynn is acting more and more in Tyrus’s stead, giving commands and leading skirmishes.
Ambry refuses to believe Gwynn is gone for good, however. Along with juggling with her forbidden feelings for Talon, her desire to free her people’s magic, and the ever-growing need to protect the tears from being drunk, the solution to stopping Gwynn means hoping harder than she ever has before. Hope can’t undo what magic has already done, but paired with action–and her newfound magic–Ambry’s hope in Gwynn might be just what her friend needs to leave the dark path she’s on.
“Stop following me,” she orders, her dark eyes glimmering.
“While I’d be the first to admit you’re even prettier in the shadows,” says Ren, “I’m not following you.”
“Oh no? Then what do you call this?” She gestures around her.
“A stairway,” says Ren. “And the way to the dungeons, where I’m currently headed.”
The girl glares at him. After several long moments of obvious examination, she concludes, “Whatever your business down here is, keep your nose out of mine.”
“My nose didn’t have any such notion,” Ren assures as she scampers down the final few steps.
