"My name is Carys. This is my story, though perhaps it is more of an explanation, or maybe a confession. Its name matters less than the fact that it is my only way to show the world that I am not the villain the history books will claim that I am. Everything I did was to save those I love."
Lady Carys is the oft-overlooked middle child of one of Isirion's most aristocratic families, though despite her inauspicious position, she's undoubtedly the glue that holds the family together. But when persistent rumors of murder, corruption, and the tragic memory of her mother's death drive the family to start fresh in a new land, they quickly learn that a simpler life doesn't always mean a safer one.
Even in this plain, rustic city, dangers lurk in the shadows. As Carys's family struggles to build a new life, enlisting the help of a mysterious stranger to keep them safe, the gathering storm swirls around them, threatening to pull them into a tempest of evil far greater than anything they could ever imagine.
