Love will find that destiny has a price.
Born with a weak heart and an odd birthmark on her stomach, Lana is a frail farm girl of twenty summers. Never could she have imagined being magically fated to become a fey host for the sword spirit, Valor — and now the magical sword is missing, stolen from the vaults of Tara, the faery home. The disturbing wonders altering Lana's life have only just begun.
Entering Lana’s life is Keegan, a fearless fey guardian of the waters who must find the magical sword for his king before time runs out. Believing only the physically strong deserve life, Keegan never expects to meet his match in the small, spirited beauty he needs to guide him to the sword.
Across dangerous passage tombs beset with enemies to the shadowy worlds below, through battles of the spirit and body, they find that destiny has a price — for even a forbidden and fevered love must be set aside when all the land lay in peril.
And as an invading army sweeps Eire’s shores, a sickly girl must find the strength to face her mysterious fate and claim a guardian’s heart — a passion that once unleashed, could lead them both into a terrible darkness or the light of a forever love.
