"Please, show me this kindness. Let me go." //
"Mhera, let this be the only time you ask this of me and the only time I must tell you no."
Lady Mhera is the niece of the Emperor of Penrua. As a child born into wealth and privilege, she spends her days getting up to mischief and dreaming of the lady she will someday become. Her life takes a dark turn, however, when she has a waking dream of a tragedy befalling her family--a dream that comes true.
Terrified, Mhera tries to keep her dark visions a secret. When the truth is revealed at last, she learns she an ability unseen for an age: the Sight.
Meanwhile, darkness roils beneath the peaceful facade of the Holy City. A rebellion is brewing among the Arcborn--the dangerous, magic-blooded undercaste of Penrua. The Arcborn will stop at nothing to overthrow the peace of the realm. Fear that the rebels will seek to exploit Mhera's gift leads the emperor to send her away, destroying the future she had envisioned for herself.
Can Mhera reclaim her independence and shape a future for herself, or will she succumb to the evil in the world and the darkness in her own heart?
