Book Two in the extraordinary Kingdom of Souls Trilogy
After years yearning for the gift of magic, Arrah has what she’s always wanted – but it came at too steep a price. Now the last witchdoctor, she’s left to pick up the pieces of a family that betrayed her, a kingdom plunged into chaos, and a love that can never be.
While Arrah returns to the tribal lands to search for survivors, Rudjek hunts down the remnants of the demon army – and uncovers a plot that would destroy what’s left of the world.
The Demon King wants Arrah. If he can’t be stopped, he will destroy everything, and everyone, standing in his way.
