As the ancient battlefield called the Sacred Land regenerates its magical potency, Lady Shey discovers a plot, conceived by the denizens of evil, to seize and control it. She must now help the descendants of the magical warriors who fought the war in the past to secure the battlefield's power. However, the descendants live in place where magic is outlawed, hated, and feared and the enemy has a new, deadly, shape-shifting monster, virtually undetectable, stalking her every move.
Sheyna Namear has been left to fend for herself on the streets of the corrupt city of Symbor. When her natural abilities catch the eye of a magic wielder, Sheyna is taken into the woman's tower as an apprentice. But something is not quite right. Sheyna constantly feels like she is being watched, her roommate hates her, and a mysterious shadow hides in the darkness outside her window.
