Elitsa Serlov only cares about two things — earning enough money to start a new life and finding the rogue mage who murdered her mother. But years without leads have left her jaded, and she won’t let anyone — friend or foe — get in her way.


In Casekraia, anyone can use magic if they’re desperate enough to rent relics from the Tower, a corrupt guild of mages more concerned with their own wealth than the welfare of the people. Elitsa has spent the last three years as a reclamation agent for the Guild, hunting down her own people for precious coin and the hope of uncovering what happened to her mother.


Just one week before her contract with the Tower is set to expire, Elitsa is coerced into a dangerous conspiracy by a gang of rebellious thieves. With her loyalty to the Tower in question, Elitsa must decide between her quest for revenge and charting a new course for her life.


With captivating characters, daring heists, and dangerous magic, this enchanting fantasy adventure spins a tale about the power of hope and friendship and our connection to the world around us.

Listen to an Audiobook excerpt!

(Audiobook narrated by Kate Reading)



           Elitsa looked at the owl-faced medallion in her hand, recalling a story her mother, Branka, had told her as a child. Long ago, when Mother Moon and Father Sun walked Cerana, a man had desired to become a god. He’d stolen the essence from one of Mother’s owls to ascend and, using its claw, rose into the heavens on gray-spotted wings. Instead of welcoming him as he’d expected, Mother Moon cast the man back down, cursing him to live as the creature he’d killed, a messenger of death.
            Now, seeing herself through Janso’s eyes, the story felt personal. Is this who I want to be? A mindless messenger of loss and ruin? Elitsa had fought for her place in the Guild’s organization, not because she believed in them, but because she’d thought they were her best chance to find her mother’s killer. But instead of justice, she’d only succeeded in protecting the mages’ wealth and influence. How many lives had Eli
tsa helped destroy by being an obedient hound for the Tower?
            The guilt and disappointment she should feel didn’t come, and that was somehow worse than any self-reproach. She’d allowed herself to stop caring. If she continued on this path, what would she become? The need to do something good took stubborn root inside her chest, thorns of urgency digging deep. Elitsa rubbed a finger over the owl’s eyes, thinking. The Guild didn’t know what essences, if any, Janso currently had. Sometimes Elitsa returned relics with a few still trapped inside, but sometimes she kept them for herself, storing the harvested essence in jars beneath the floorboards of her room. A small act of practical and selfish rebellion with minimal risk. She could help Janso if she wanted, ensure his daughter didn’t go to bed hungry.
            Elitsa made a decision. “Do you have something to store your essences in, Mr. Janso?”
