Book 2.5 in the Witchlands
A Goodreads Award Semi-Finalist
Secrets long-buried. Dark magic waking. And one young acolyte with the fate of the Witchlands in her hands…
Sisters with the gift of Sight — Sightwitches, who can see into the future — are of a rare and ancient order. Raised in a secluded convent, they await the invitation of their goddess to enter the depths of the mountain and receive the sacred gift of foretelling.
But for young Ryber Fortiza, that call never comes. As the only sister without Sight, Ryber has devoted herself to the goddess. Surely, if she just works hard enough, she will finally be gifted like everyone else.
Until one day, all Sisters who possess the Sight are summoned into the mountain — and never return. Now Ryber, still Sight-less, is the only one of their order left. Can she, who has spent her life feeling like the weakest, be the one to save her Sisters and the ancient power they protect?
On her journey underground, she encounters a young captain named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he got there. Together they trek ever deeper, the mountain tunnels filled with mysteries and horrors. And what they find at the end will alter the fate of the Witchlands forever.
