At 17, Lysandra witnessed the brutal murder of her family, and lost her sight. Now, after nearly 10 years of living in isolation, during which time she has become a master of herbology and the healing arts, and discovered her gift of clairvoyance, Lysandra emerges to answer the call of a vision that has long plagued her. Following its mystical call, she encounters Father Renan, a priest conflicted by his own magical talents -- and the very man who has been communicating with her through her dreams. According to a prophetic and sacred text, Father Renan explains, the two of them have been chosen to install the rightful queen of Aghamore on the throne. Should they fail, the kingdom will be plunged into a millennium of darkness and tyranny.
