THE APPRENTICESHIP IS OVER NOW THE REAL TEST HAS BEGUN When word that Yelena is a Soulfinder - able to capture and release souls - spreads like wildfire, people grow uneasy.
Already Yelena's unusual abilities and past have set her apart. As the Council debates Yelena's fate, she receives a disturbing message: a plot is rising against her homeland, led by a murderous sorcerer she has defeated before.
Honour sets Yelena on a path that will test the limits of her skills, and the hope of reuniting with her beloved spurs her onward.
Her journey is fraught with allies and enemies. Yelena will have but one chance to prove herself - and save the land she holds dear. `...a compelling new fantasy series. Snyder has a lovely, light touch, but manages to make Yelena's journey and her back story so engrossing' Rhiana Pratchett, SFX
