Hunted for his ability to see into the future and the past, Cinder finds himself taken in by the Council, more specifically, the Council's pet Warlock. Kydyn isn't an easy man to get along with. He's cruel and cold. A smart ass and every inch of him screams 'stay away'. He's not kind, and he leaves little to be desired, but the warlock has feelings. They're just buried under all the grit. And he's a warlock.... one of only two, and warlocks aren't rainbows and sunshine. In between the chaos, Cinder might find that Kydyn has a lot more to him than he shows.
