Five centuries after the destruction of the Mages of Alasea, a young girl, Elena, inherits the powers that the Mages had so carefully hidden from their terrible enemy.
Elena bears the mark of the wit'ch upon her palm, a crimson stain that belies the wild power it may wield.
Only a mistress of blood magick can stand against the Dark Lord - but Elena is not yet mistress of her magick.
To discover the key to the Dark Lord's defeat, Elena must travel to A'loa Glen - a perilous journey, for if the Dark Lord finds her first, she will become his most fearsome weapon. Find out more about this title and others at www.orbitbooks.co.uk
