Magic and machinations collide as four teenagers race to stop an otherworldly threat…
It was the city of Halfice that had led the attack on Saig's home of Running Water--so Halfice would be the target of Saig's infiltration mission. Struggling to stay ahead of the subterfuge pervading the city, she must come into her own to unravel the enemies' secrets. Meanwhile, Ande must manipulate the players into sabotaging themselves. Both of them are essential to the mission's success--if they can figure out how to work together.
Trei embarks on an espionage mission of his own, joining the mysterious and dangerous Magsak. He'll discover how they fit into the plots against Running Water…unless they shape him into a tool for their own use first.
Back home, Auris decides how to guide her city as the new headwoman. But Running Water's foes won't stay away just because one assault was repelled. Auris must safeguard her home until the others return with the knowledge they need to fight back.
All of them are running out of time, as their enemies' well-established plans move towards completion. They can't afford for a single one of them to fail. Because if they do…Running Water won't stand a chance.
Book Two in The Clydian Chronicles, starting with Chains Carried on Wings.
