Times are truly desperate within Averalaan's hundred holdings, and Jewel MArkess and her den are finding it hard to survive. Then suddenly their mentor, Rath, orders them to avoid the ancient Undercity beneath Averlaan's streets, cutting them off from their main source of income. Yet Rath himself refuses to heed the warnings of Jewel's seer dreams. Instead, he allies with the mages of the Order of Knowledge in a secret war against demonic foes, knowing he'll be targeted for death - or worse. In a last attempt to protect Jewel and her den, he writes a note of introduction to the head of House Terafin - the sister he's sworn never to contact. For only within the Terafin manse would the den stand a chance of escaping the unnatural forces reaching out to claim them....

I am hooked by this series and find myself looking for the next one. There is a Sun Sword Series which happens between books 4 and 5 and Audible does not carry these. So when you get there you are not missing a book just keep going!
I have read all of Michelle Sagara's books and knew she wrote as Michelle West. Tried it and I liked it! Very similar style of writing and while I felt some of the characters familiar, it added to my enjoyment. One of the best things I like about these books are that I can share them with my grandchildren. Good for all ages.
