Tired of living a small life, Lilia moves to a bustling port and finds work as a cook. But her neat, ordered world crumbles the day a handsome, enigmatic stranger leaves a charm-stone in her safekeeping.

Ever since Lilia started work at his father’s inn, Dain has wanted her—only she isn’t interested in him. But when Lilia’s shadow starts acting strangely, and the stranger comes back to retrieve his charm-stone, Dain takes on the role of her protector.

On an epic journey into danger and discovery, Lilia and Dain flee assassins who hunt the stone. The shadows are deepening and an ancient evil risks being unleashed upon the world. Lilia must face the darkness, and her own fears--or there will be no going home.
