From the New York Times bestselling author of the House of Night series-a passionate paranormal delight...
Empousai family roses have bloomed for centuries, thanks to the drops of blood their women sacrifice for their gardens. But Mikki would rather forget this family quirk and lead a normal life. Until she unwittingly performs a ritual, ending up in the strangely familiar Realm of the Rose. As its goddess Hecate reveals, Mikki is a priestess-and the Realm's been waiting for her...
Long ago, an enraged Hecate cursed her guardian beast and the entire Realm with a slumber only a priestess can undo-and she's counting on Mikki. The beast at first terrifies Mikki-but soon intrigues her more than any man ever has. But the only way he and the Realm can be saved is for Mikki to sacrifice her life-giving blood-and herself...
Award-winning author P. C. Cast is a dynamic, entertaining orator and an extraordinary teacher. Currently, her realm is in Oklahoma, where she resides with her spoiled cat, Patchy Poo the Pud, and her stubborn Scottie dogs, better known as The Snotties.
