BOOK ONE

The Wounded Talisman

It brought them together and tore them apart.

Lucida Green is the sixth samaran. At thirteen she already possesses the sum of the powers of those before her, but to earn the zinder she must master a curious gift. After four years of training and daily practice she’s on the verge of success when her mother bans the lessons, insisting that it’s too dangerous. These are dark days.

 

When an unexpected visitor appears with an unusual mission Lucy breaks the rules and takes a perilous journey to an unlikely place. Given the zinder before mastering her gift she learns quickly just how bonded they are.
