They killed my mother.
Now we rise.
ZÃ©lie Adebola remembers when the soil of OrÃ¯sha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and ZÃ©lie's Reaper mother summoned forth souls.
But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving ZÃ©lie without a mother and her people without hope.
Now ZÃ©lie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, ZÃ©lie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.
Danger lurks in OrÃ¯sha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be ZÃ©lie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
