The veil has been broken and our world is changing. More than a decade has passed since the last world war left cities of glass and steel in ruin, but humanity has risen among the twisted wreckage of what once was and created villages governed by their own laws, religions and governments. One such place is Lia Fail. While their queen, Alia Stark, prepares to welcome visitors from neighboring colonies to a biannual revel, known as the Gathering, a malevolent unease creeps into the village, leading the way for an unearthly evil. And while the mystery unfolds, Alia realizes she must stand against the darkness that threatens those she holds most dear. Will she have the courage to do what must be done, or will the final cost be too great? This is the beginning of a journey that will change their lives forever. This book contains adult situations and is intended for a mature audience.
