If there has ever been such a thing as a righteous God, then I know I have him on my side. I'm here on a mission, and I will move heaven and hell to see it done.
Love is a dangerous distraction from duty.
All hail Queen Sabin'theoria of the Unseelie, daughter and heir of Queen Mali'theoria, and blood descendant of Lachlina, the One True Goddess, and Vestior, Harbinger of Nightmares.
By blood and magic and by the rights of both, what once was solely ours shall be no longer. By will and might, we merge our purposes and intents. As I will it, so mote it be.
War is coming, or is it already here? Faye is stuck trying to overcome her PTSD from the last battle. Will she be able to learn enough magic in time to stop Typhon in this war or will her guilt cripple her in the Ether's time of need?
On the run from Thorn and Edriast, Kaylan struggles with how to control the Relic and keeping her only family safe from harm.
We aren't like the creatures who were made in this world. We aren't meant to debase ourselves with then. To live a human life is to forget who we are. To forget who we are is to be an enemy to ourselves. To each other."
Sabine is Marked for death and fled. but the Wild Hunt will never give up.
There are no lessons in it. There's just this harsh, horrible world touched with beautiful magic, where shitty things happen. And they don't happen for a reason, or in threes, or in a way that looks like justice. They're set in a place that has no rules and doesn't want any.
