Publisher's Summary

There are three absolutes in Mairi Wallace's world:

  1. The Mages rule every city in Scotland with terrible, violent authority.
  2. It is not physically possible for any woman to wield magic.
  3. Mairi does not have a voice.

She is about to learn that none of these things have to be true.

From twisted wynds and tartan shops to a dangerous daemon and malevolent ravens, the future of a tattered nation might lie with one solitary woman.

Maybe the author should have hummed the words

For such an accomplished writer it was disappointing to listen to the "f" word continually throughout the story. It seems as if she ran out of imagination and substituted the easy, albeit lazy word for every frustration, surprise, hostility, and...well you get the picture. I usually enjoy Ms. Harper, especially the Spirit Witch series. Let's hope she gets her vocabulary back with future endeavors.
