After a stressful season in Atlantis, Cordelia was expecting to cut loose with some faerie festivities before catching up with her workaholic sister. But when the faeries in this preserve turn out to be oddly unwelcoming, she's not ready to call it a night.
Sirens have learned to go with the flow, and Cordelia decides an adventure with a pack of wolves may be just the kind of break she needs.
This amuse-bouche of a tale is set in the world of the Fifth Mage War series but contains no spoilers. Designed for new readers, the story takes place about a year before the events of the first book, Sirens Unbound, and introduces characters we next meet later in the series.
Kyoko has six years remaining in her apprenticeship, but her odds of surviving long enough to celebrate her freedom are getting dimmer every day — Her vampire master is making a play for control of Rio de Janeiro, and things are not going well.
They might stand a chance if Kyoko can finally learn how to cast the most complex spell her master devised. And with the right incentives, Kyoko may just discover an even greater power than anyone can imagine.
