struggles to fight back against the harsh rulings of the Mage
Council, more and more Gardnerian soldiers descend upon the
University…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the
nearby military base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm’s
length, Lukas is determined to tie himself to her, still convinced
that she is the heir to the power of the Black Witch, a legacy of
magic that will decide the future of all Erthia. As his own magic
calls out to her, seeking to awaken a dark force within, Elloren

Caught between her
growing feelings for the rebellious Yvan Guriel and the seductive
power offered by Lukas, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what
she knows is right and protect everyone she loves…even if that
means protecting them from herself.
