Young Lucien, the little boy Silvermay has raised as her own, must be freed of his Wyrdborn magic, and it's not just for him she must see this done. Lucien might yet destroy whole kingdoms. And so the three travel to Erebis Felan where the terrible power in Lucien changes him in a way no one could possibly imagine.
