Sybell travels to her ancestral homelands aiming to rebuild her family's keep and reassert the supremacy of her kind, the Acuri, that dominate the mind and turn people into their thralls. The end of her madic existence means those that mercilessly hunt Acuri will find her. Their role as hunters of Acuri have defined siblings, Jasper and Marget, since birth. But the death of their father left the once proud family reduced to a debt-ridden house. To further complicate matters, Jasper's only competition has been swallowing up all of the Iacios, the gifted few who can shield those around them from the Acuri influence. The southern warlord won't grant Jasper a contract to hunt Acuri without an Iacio. A young and powerful Iacio arrives in town, but someone or something is stalking her. Andreu's false brothers burned his family and put him to the sword for murders he didn't commit. A spirit weaver raises Andreu from the dead, granting him a chance at vengeance. He quickly learns the spirit weaver has plans of her own that don't align with his and should he resist, the spirits of his family are at risk. Four souls vying to recapture a vital part of their identity. They begin in isolation, but providence will bear witness to their collision.
