How much is your life worth?
In the territory of Ixia control is maintained through the Code of Behaviour forbidding the practice of magic, but danger lurks in mysterious places...
Imprisoned for murder, Yelena Zaltana's punishment is death, unless she accepts the Position of the Commander of Ixia's food taster... and risks assassination from poison daily.
In a world where magic equals death and freedom is for the lucky few, the battle for Yelena's life has just begun.
Confronting The Past - Controlling The Future. With an execution order on her head, Yelena has no choice but to escape to Sitia, the land of her birth.
With only a year to master her magic – or face death – Yelena must begin her apprenticeship and travels to the Four Towers of the Magician’s Keep. But nothing in Sitia is familiar. Not the family to whom she is a stranger. Not the unsettling new facets of her magic. Not the brother who resents her return. As she struggles to understand where she belongs and how to control her rare powers, a rogue magician emerges – and Yelena catches his eye. Suddenly she is embroiled in battle against good and evil. And once again it will be her magical abilities that will either save her life…or be her downfall.
The battle of her life has begun
In the barren territory of Sitia, power comes at a price. Yelena Zaltana possesses the most terrifying magic in the district the ability to capture and release souls.
While the sinister Sitian council meet to decide her fate, Yelena must capture a Soulstealer, her dark counterpart, until she discovers someone far more dangerous.
And in the war between good and evil, there can only ever be one victor.
Once, only her own life hung in the balance…
When Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. She survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia.
Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands―and protect her relationship with Valek.
Suddenly, though, dissent is rising. And Valek’s job―and his life―are in danger.
As Yelena tries to uncover her enemies, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. And now she must find a way to keep not only herself but all that she holds dear alive.
A NEW DARKNESS IS RISING FOR YELENA ZALTANA
Ever since being kidnapped from the Illiais jungle as a child, Yelena Zaltana's life has been in peril. But the recent loss of her Soulfinding abilities - the powerful magic that has protected her before - has made her more vulnerable to her enemies.
As she searches for a way to reclaim her abilites neither Ixia nor Sitia are safe for her. Especially since the growing discord between the two countries and the possibility of a war threatens everything Yelena holds dear.
Now with the most sinister threat she as ever faced approaching, Yelena will have to find a new way to fight the dark.
Despite the odds, Yelena and Valek have forged an irrevocable bond―and a family―that transcends borders. Now, when their two homelands stand on the brink of war, they must fight with magic and cunning to thwart an Ixian plot to invade Sitia.
Yelena seeks to break the hold of the insidious Theobroma that destroys a person's resistance to magical persuasion. But the Cartel is determined to keep influential citizens and Sitian diplomats in thrall―and Yelena at bay. With every bounty hunter after her, Yelena is forced to make a dangerous deal.
With might and magic, Valek peels back the layers of betrayal surrounding the Commander. At its rotten core lies a powerful magician…and his latest discovery. The fate of all rests upon two unlikely weapons. One may turn the tide. The other could spell the end of everything.
