Description
From the "New York Times" bestselling series
Having passed her test in Book One, Sunshine's Luiseach powers are now fully awakened: for months now, Sunshine has felt spirits everywhere: heard voices, felt emotions intense and sometimes overwhelming. She tries to ignore them, but it is impossible. Hoping to get her powers under control and hoping for answers to her never-ending questions she agrees to undergo training with her Luiseach mentor, even though she still hopes to give up her powers someday.
She and her mentor clash left and right; he doesn t understand or approve of her attachment to the humans in her life; and she can t understand how he could give her up so many years ago, only to endanger her mother's life as part of a test.
Sunshine's training is every bit as terrifying and creepy as her test was, and along the way she meets and befriends another young Luiseach, forcing her to confront her feelings for Nolan. Though her mentor is reluctant to answer her many questions, she finally learns more about her lineage, as well as the rift that threatens the future of Luiseach and the human race... and the crucial part she has to play in repairing it.
