National bestselling author Barb Hendee presents a dark, fascinating new world and the story of two sisters who will discover they have far more power than they ever envisioned....

In a small village in the nation of Droevinka, orphaned sisters C#65533;line and Amelie Fawe scrape out a living selling herbal medicines in their apothecary shop. C#65533;line earns additional money by posing as a seer and pretending to read people's futures.

But they exist in a land of great noble houses, all vying for power, and when the sisters refuse the orders of a warlord prince, they must flee and are forced to depend on the warlord prince's brother, Anton, for a temporary haven.

A series of bizarre deaths of pretty young girls is plaguing the village surrounding Prince Anton's castle. He offers C#65533;line and Amelie permanent protection if they can use their "skills" to find the killer.

With little choice, the sisters enter a world unknown to them--of fine gowns and banquets and advances from powerful men. Their survival depends on catching a murderer who appears to walk through walls and vanish without a trace--and the danger grows with each passing night.

Fast read (didn't want to put it down) that was very enjoyable - good characters in Celine and Amelie. Another winning series by Barb Hendee.

Another great series by Barb Hendee. I do hope that there will be many more to follow. I really enjoyed the story and love Celine and Amalie.

Loved this book! Action held through out and kept my interest....but I guessed who was the bad guy when they were introduced. But it turned out okay! Because the how of the bad guying was different then I expected.

good action in the beginning, but as soon as it turned into palace intrigue, I lost all interest. Failed the 50 page test.
