In one fell swoop, the resistance was shattered. Lives were taken. Hope was lost. Peace slipped like grains of sand through his fingers. So did the Crown of Stones. Now, forced into hiding, Ian Troy grapples for a way to save the realm—and free its people—from the sadistic clutches of Jem Reth; Mirra’kelan’s new self-appointed emperor. Plagued with the knowledge of a tragic future, he strives to influence events and save those he cares for. But his magic has betrayed him, and Fate has other plans.
Marked by the crown, hindered by the transformation spell contained within, each cast brings Ian one step closer to becoming more beast than man. Each move brings the death and destruction foretold in his vision inexplicably nearer. With Langor on the brink of war, and King Malaq’s plan for peace hanging in the balance, Ian returns to the ancient past; seeking an end to the eldring spell and a means to thwart Jem’s growing domination. What he finds there sets off a chain of revelations that leads Ian places he never thought to go.
Entrusted with the future of his race, Ian becomes the linchpin for lasting change. But how much weight can one man carry? And how much is he willing to sacrifice in the name of peace?

Terri Murphy was the down-to-earth twin; she wasn’t prone to dramatics, or exaggeration and she’d always been proud of her ability to take care of herself. That is, until an attack on campus leaves her feeling shattered and vulnerable. With everyone else heading off for Spring Break, the only person that’s left is the only one she wants around anyway, because Terri has been in love with Jet Chang since they were both freshmen and the feeling has stuck with her through three years of college and his apparent disinterest in anything but friendship.
Hating to see his best friend so downtrodden, Jet decides to stay on campus rather than go home for Spring Break as planned and sets about trying to help Terri put herself back together and distracting her with fun-filled days out. However, when he looks away from his laptop and the career as an author he’s trying to carve out for himself, he notices things about Terri that he hadn’t before. Now, can he convince her that his sudden romantic interest has nothing to do with trying to build up her confidence after the attack?
