A tyrant with a vendetta.
A witch with a destiny.
All’s fair in war and magic.
Raised in an isolated Kota village, Vedanleé uses her gifts to draw magic from the ancient lands of her coastal home. The Clan Eldress, the most powerful woman in the village, has a vision about the prophesied Woman of the Void – a woman destined to wield unfathomable power. To her surprise, Vedanleé is named as this woman.
Then Thurston Olander, Lord High Commander of the Dominion global empire, comes to fulfill an old custom. The women of the clan uncover a whole new danger, and Vedanleé must go with Thurston to ensure their safety.
Living in the Dominion’s technologically advanced world, Vedanleé’s power over the void grows as she discovers the science behind her magic. But she lives in fear, for Thurston is not what he seemed.
Will she ever become the Woman of the Void? Escape is her only option, but where will she ever be safe in Thurston’s empire?
