Publisher's Summary

A huntress with no past. A rival with a secret. A kingdom's fate hangs in the balance...

Ayleth and her shade move as one, ever hungry for the hunt. Under her mentor's tight control, she fears her memories are being stolen. Now 19, apprenticed for as long as she can remember to the mysterious Holy Order, she longs to rise in the ranks and banish untamed spirits for the prophesied Golden Prince.

When shadowy threats descend on the crown, Ayleth seizes a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prove her worth in open competition. Seeking to win the prince's favor and escape her scheming mentor, she resolves to hold her own against Terryn, a handsome, arrogant opponent who may be more than a match for her untested powers.

But as the two rivals follow a trail beyond the Great Barrier and confront legendary evil, the stolen secrets of Ayleth's past may return to haunt her...

Can Ayleth win the trial and reclaim her true self? Can she even survive her first day?

Loving this series!

Dark and twisty, excellent world building, unpredictable, and original. I loved the characters, the magic system, and fell for not only the main character but the side plots as well. Cannot wait to see where the rest of the series goes. Sylvia Mercedes is going onto my auto-buy author list.

book sucks

This book sucks. Whiney "heroine" and the narrators voice is just a cherry on top of the terrible book. Didn't even make it to the halfway point of the book (I was hoping something......anything......would happen)
