Description

In this exciting follow-up to Shimmer and Burn, Faris has given up love to save her sister's life and the dying kingdom of Avinea, but will her sacrifices be enough to overcome the poisoned magic and villains surrounding her on all sides? The fight is just beginning. Faris has been forced to give up the man she loves for a dangerous but necessary alliance. Her loyalty is bound by a powerful spell to his future bride, the villainous Bryn. And her mother's powerful spell that could be the key to saving Avinea fights with poisoned magic for control of her heart. None of that matters though because everything Faris has done has been for Cadence, the little sister she's been trying to rescue from the king's slavery. Now they're finally reunited, but Cadence has a gut-wrenching confession: she remembers everything from while she was under the king's enchantment. She wants nothing to do with Faris. Heartbroken, Faris focuses on tracking Merlock, the king who must be killed to stop The Burn, by manipulating her mother's spell through her dreams. Before long though, Faris realizes these aren't normal dreams, they might just be real, and they may show her a way to kill Merlock herself. But there are things darker than poison that lie in The Burn, and not even the spell deep in Faris's chest can stop them. Faris will again be faced with impossible choices. Does she risk everything to save Avinea, even if she might lose North and further betray her sister's trust? Or does she succumb to the poison inside that begs her to think this time, finally, of herself?
