Naomi never understood what the star-shaped scar on her neck meant. Malindra only told her to keep it covered, which Naomi has, ever since the old enchantress was brutally murdered when Naomi was eleven. Now at seventeen, Naomi cares for the young Zander is the small farming community of Sharlot, where she sells her master's cuts of meat in the market.

But on this day, the prince of Parbraven has arrived in the market square with his caravan. There, in the back of his carriage sits a woman, ethereal and wind-swept, silently observing the awestruck crowd--a woman with the same mark on her neck. Within that moment, time slows and the significance of what she is seeing focuses to a point. She is not alone, someone else is marked. Even as Naomi hurries to understand this connection to a stranger, she is whisked away from the discovery of her past, kidnapped by a man who knows her secret and has vowed to keep her safe.
