    Pyrre Lakatur is not, to her mind, an assassin, not a murderer - she is a priestess. At least, she will be once she passes her final trial. The problem isn't the killing. The problem, rather, is love. For to complete her trial, Pyrre has ten days to kill the seven people enumerated in an ancient song, including "the one who made your mind and body sing with love / who will not come again." Pyrre isn't sure she's ever been in love.

Während ihre Welt im Chaos zu versinken droht, versuchen Kaden, Adare und Valyn, die drei Erben Sanlituns, den Thron ihres Vaters und ihre Untertanen zu retten.
