More than five centuries after Camelot, a new king heralded by prophecy has appeared. As one of the last sorceresses of a dying order sworn to protect the new ruler at all costs, Alwen must answer a summons she thought she might never receive. Bound by oath, Alwen returns to Fane Gramarye, the ancient bastion of magic standing against the rise of evil. For alongside the prophecy of the benevolent king, a darker foretelling envisions the land overrun by a demonic army and cast into ruin. Alwen has barely set foot in her homeland when she realizes traitors lurk within the Stewardry, threatening to destroy it. To thwart the corruption and preserve her order, Alwen must draw upon power she never knew she possessed and prepare to sacrifice everything she holds dear even herself. If she fails, the prophecy of peace will be banished, and darkness will rule.

About the Author
Roberta Trahan is a former journalist and marketing professional who loves researching her books almost as much as writing them. She tries to incorporate her love of mythology, folklore, and history into her books and is particularly fascinated by her own Celtic heritage, which includes more than three hundred years of family ancestry in Cornwall and Wales. First published nationally as a teenager, Roberta earned a degree in journalism and advertising at the University of Oregon and then worked in various sales, publicity, and marketing positions before turning to writing books. When Roberta isn't writing, she stays active in the local writing community as a speaker and instructor, and is a member of many organizations. A Pacific Northwest native, Roberta makes her home near Seattle, Washington, with her family and as many cats as they will allow her to have. She also admits to having a mild obsession with hummingbirds, a not-so-mild addiction to coffee and chocolate, and an antique jewelry hoard.
