Ryla is being hunted for a murder she accidentally committed with a magic she didn't know she had.
The stories Ryla's been told about those who possess dangerous magic, the Woven, and the brave rebellion that destroyed them, are all she's ever known. Magic is now illegal, and their beloved leader, the Prestige, hunts down those left in hiding for the protection of the kingdom. Ryla fears the Woven just as much as the next common-born ... until she finds out she's one of them.
After accidentally killing one of the Prestige's men with magic, Ryla uses the only escape plan available- hiding in the wagons of the Caravan, a motley crew of performers and tradesmen. But the Caravan has its own secrets and Ryla begins to glimpse another world beneath the lies she's been told her whole life.
The Carvan takes her to a refuge, but even amongst the Woven, Ryla is an outcast. Her magic is unpredictable, sometimes resulting in disaster. When the Prestige gets wind of her whereabouts, Ryla must leave the safe-haven and learn to fight back. If Ryla cannot begin to trust in herself and in the criminals she's always feared, it may bring ruin to them all.
