Deryn may fit the stereotype better than most, but she has her reasons. A childhood tragedy has left her wary of forming attachments.

Jemeryl and Tevi's relationship is put to the test when the Guardian sends Jemeryl on a mission that lands her not only in harm's way, but also back into the sights of a previous lover.

The Protectorate of Lyremouth promises liberty for all its citizens, but this does not mean that everyone is equal. When Jemeryl is summoned alone to Lyremouth, she suspects it is a ploy to separate her from her lover, Tevi. After all, many disapprove of their relationship—not because they are both woman, but because Jemeryl is a sorcerer and Tevi is not.

However, old bonds of affection are enough to make her accept the assignment, even though she is sure that she has been told only half the true story.

But Jemeryl is wrong—she has not been told even a tenth of what is behind this mission. When Jemeryl does not return, nobody can stop Tevi from going...
