"Once the mirror is reunited with the tear, The Devil will ascend once again."
In a mirror, the spirit of a dead King lies trapped. And in a pure twelve-year old, the Devil's spirit lies in wait. Euphrosyne Rains, a sweet girl from a poor family, discovers the curse upon her. Because of the purity of her heart, the Devil chose her tiny body as his vessel.
Artemis Delara, a bright but secretive young woman, is notorious for her past cruelty. In an attempt at atonement, she accompanies Euphrosyne in her escape from the clutches of those who desire the Devil's tear, and encounter many allies, as well as enemies.
All of Euphrosyne's allies must make a decision; a decision that will save or destroy their land, their force, and the innocent Euphrosyne.
Meanwhile, the Devil watches in amusement as the pawns on his chessboard hold on to dear life.
