WHAT IF YOU FOUND OUT YOU WEREN’T REALLY A PRINCESS AND YOUR PARENTS WEREN’T YOUR PARENTS?
When Tika opens a letter from her recently deceased mother on her 16th birthday, she has no idea she will discover a confession which will change her life forever:
“You were not born of me, but sent here by the Elves to keep you safe.”
From that moment on Tika is thrust into a world of danger and deception, not knowing who she can trust.
She is forced to leave her life in the castle, packed up in stuffy wagon in the dead of night to head to the Elven city of Xanti, where she hopes to be safe from Mortan, the rogue sorcerer who is trying to kill her.
But Mortan has his spies, his evil Sha’andari hunting her, and even a traitor within Tika’s group. For there was a reason the Elves placed Tika with King Maric and Queen Isleen when she was a baby—a reason Tika never felt like she belonged, and a reason Fathara needs her.
Tika reaches the place of her birth, hoping to find a home, a family, and a safe haven But Mortan has other plans for the girl with incredible healing powers. And what is worse than an evil sorcerer who wants you dead? An evil sorcerer who wants you alive.
Tika is forced to leave Xanti and find a way to protect herself against Mortan, for even though she denies being Azetha, she can't deny the danger she faces. Only The Veil of Death will provide her with some measure of protection against Mortan and his assassins. But how many more souls will death claim this time as she travels to The Tower of Sorrows?
Tika has survived Mortan's assassins and the terrors of The Swamp of Tears. Now armed with the Veil of Death, and helped by the mysterious warrior Tahle'el, Tika faces her greatest challenge yet as she heads toward The Mercy Mines to try and rescue her father.
But she can't even seem to help herself, for Mortan isn't the only one who dreams of capturing Tika. And what Prince Perdon wants, he gets. Tika is forced to fight against phantom voices and even her best friend Herra in a battle to the death as she struggles to free herself from Perdon's "collection."
