Visions of the Storm (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
The second installment in a series praised for its epic world-building, this deeply imaginative fantasy is perfect for teens and adults looking for strong female protagonists, heart-pounding adventure, and searing romance.
At last Theorie is home in Dynas Rhydent, but there is little solace to be had. A violent cult is terrorizing the streets as Theorie works to convince a skeptical High Council to send aid to the Fae of Kai'Ashkazi, who remain trapped behind a magical barrier, their islands hidden by powerful storms. In a final, desperate bid to win the Council's support, Theorie agrees to the Trials, a deadly series of tests that determines the worth and rank of a Magi. If she fails she becomes the property of the High Council, but if she succeeds they agree to render aid-for a price. As Theorie fights for survival in the treacherous Trials, her heart wages a different kind of warfare when her oldest and most treasured relationship begins to crumble while a new one rises to take its place.
Meanwhile, Kyte and Sybil remain prisoners in the Fae islands. Drastically changed, Kyte struggles to make sense of his newfound abilities even as he fights for control from Lucena. When Kyte is compelled to search for Merida and her pack of shapeshifters, Sybil decides to do what she can to fight back. Braving the subterranean depths of Sky's Peak, she searches for a way to free Kyte from Lucena's control with the help of a mysterious new friend. But in her newfound visions, the truth may be more than she bargained for. Does she have what it takes to save Kyte and herself? Or is she only prolonging the inevitable?
