SHE IS THE EMPIRE'S GREATEST SECRET.
HE IS THE EMPIRE'S GREATEST FEAR.
THEIR QUEST SPANS DIMENSIONS.
THEIR UNLIKELY LOVE SACRIFICES ALL.
For years, Kassia Treya has spied on her father's late-night conversations with the dead, wishing to one day uncover his secrets. When his sudden death leaves her in the dark regarding her peculiar power and its connection to the ghostly visitors, she grows desperate for answers. The only person who can help her is Vincent Akarre, a self-exiled prince with a destructive power and, consequently, a murderous reputation.
Kassia isn't prepared for what Vincent reveals to her. A mysterious plague is threatening both the physical and spirit worlds, and her choices will determine their fate--the fate of all mankind. To bring about change, not only is she expected to bind herself to the notorious prince, but her bloodline exposes her to his ruthless brothers who seek to exploit her for their gain. To survive the cruel, treacherous game within the imperial family and to save both the living and the dead, Kassia must seize the role and influence she was always meant to harness. And she must find the courage to trust Vincent, the man whose fate seems bound to hers--and whose mere presence may kill her.
