An ancient prophecy. A secret clan determined to see the world returned to war. A witch marked for death.
I have no name. No voice. No magic. I am nothing but his toy, his slave. He keeps me in the dark, only bringing me into the light when he wants to use me. I cannot die, for the instrument of my destruction—a shackle, he calls it—holds me in this life of pain and anguish.
Until Raven. I don’t know what brought him to my tormentor’s lair, but his touch set my soul ablaze. In his eyes, I found solace, and when he asked for my trust, I offered it freely. He stood up to the devil who enslaved me, broke the shackle’s cruel hold, and brought me to his home, where he offered me everything I could ever want or need. Except for my magic. My witch’s flame died so long ago.
I never believed I would find my mate. The moment I brushed her hand, I knew. But how can I mate with her when her body and mind are so broken, I can barely touch her? She’s the Jewel, the one witch who can bring about lasting peace or return the world to war. As her magic starts to blossom, we both find hope, but when her tormentor returns, will either of us survive long enough to fulfill the prophecy? To find love?
