Book Two in the Riders Series - Behind the magic and splendour of Valaxia, lies a darker world of torture, betrayal and deceit. One that Neely Lynch has become too well acquainted with; her life contained to the cells of Acheron and her soul hidden from the one who shares it. It festers, growing dark just like those who came before her as she fights to survive in a world that only wants to see her gone. The tide in Valaxia is turning, the truths of history rearing its ugly head. She will learn, they all will learn just why Valaxia fears the Vidalin Rider.
