In the world of healers, there is no room for magic. Fee knows this, just as certainly as she knows that her magic must be kept secret. Bet the crown prince Xavi, Fee's best friend and only source of comfort, is sick. So sick that Fee can barely contain the magic lying dormant inside her. She could use it, just a little, to heal him. But magic comes at a deadly cost - and attracts those who would seek to snuff it out forever. A wisp of a spell later, Fee finds herself caught in a whirl of secret motivations and dark pasts, where no one is who - or what - they appear to be. And saving her best friend means delvng deeper into the tempting and treacherous world whose call she has long resisted - uncovering a secret that will change everything.
