Publisher's Summary

Two sisters. Two seeds of power. One Mage's Guild, and an unprecedented new power—but which sister does it belong to?

Cadence and her sister possess the seeds of glory and ruin—or so their father always insisted. Cadence never understood what he meant until Airlie’s seed of power is activated, turning her into the most powerful mage in generations. Despite knowing it must mean her own dormant seed is much more malevolent, Cadence is swept away to the distant Mage’s Guild in her sister’s wake. She’s used to living in Airlie’s shadow, but she can’t see a place for herself in this new world.

Nor can she believe in the apparent interest of the charming Zeke. No one has ever chosen her over her beautiful sister.

But leaving her new home isn’t an option. Plagued by questions from her isolated childhood, Cadence needs answers, and the Guild might hold them. But as the revelations grow, Cadence must find a way to conceal the truth from her new companions before the sisters’ secrets turn everyone against them.

And as word of Airlie’s power spreads, new danger emerges. Across the kingdom’s border, a threat is growing among the ruins of their former neighbor—enemies who will do anything to get their hands on the sisters and the seeds they contain. No longer able to shelter behind Airlie, Cadence must make a choice. Will she embrace her power—whatever it might be—or pursue a different path?

Intriguing Mystery and Magic

Cadence was a refreshing heroine in her sister’s shadow. I was constantly curious with her about her heritage and the unfamiliar world around her. Cellier’s storytelling was marvelous again.

Really enjoyable

Like so many others, this book by Melanie Cellier was really interesting, full of interesting, likeable characters that kept me captivated throughout the whole book and i can't wait for the rest of the series to become available.

Kira Fixx was a great narrator and offered fantastic male and female character voices, giving everyone individuality and fleshed out the story. Highly recommended
