For the Darkborn, the touch of sunlight kills, while darkness is lethal for the Lightborn. For centuries, the two have lived in an uneasy peace, sharing the same city but never meeting. Now, with the rise of the Shadowborn, everything is about to change… Condemned to death by the Darkborn for practicing sorcery, Lady Telmaine Hearne escaped her fate and is now bound with her mageborn allies for the Borders—and the war brewing there. Also on the frontlines of the battle between Darkborn and Shadowborn is the assassin Floria White Hand, desperately maneuvering between allies and enemies to bring her Lightborn prince home safe. The fragile alliance between Lightborn and Darkborn, between mage and non-mage, is endangered. The mage Tammorn is forced to become ambassador to the enemy. And a lifetime fighting the Shadowborn has not prepared Ishmael di Studier for what he will find when he follows the Call from the Shadowlands—and meets the woman behind it… From the Paperback edition.

Once again, something's on the prowl, leaving hundreds of comatose, soulless victims in its wake. Couldn't the deadliest assassins of the Otherworld go after someone else instead of the brand new Queen of the Seelie? One who still hasn't adapted to her new role. Lila would ask Liam Kane, King of the Unseelie, for advice, but something's off with him, too. He's holding back. In some way. About some thing. In fact, he refuses to tell her what's going on. The truth holds Lila back from the greatness of her role-the people she was born to lead-the man who she desperately loves-and the solution to the latest war raging around her. To find the answers, she'll need to fight through her own darkness and embark on a journey through her psyche. If she doesn't succeed, the Shadowborn will claim not only her world, but her soul.
