Since their father was taken to the dungeons of the capital city, Eoin and Saera have had to fend for themselves. If Eoin can find an apprenticeship in the capital, they can work on freeing him.

But Saera is afflicted with an evil goddess’s light, and when her Aura flares up in the middle of the street, the power-hungry Church Regency are quickly on their heels, keen to eradicate the threat.

With more than the Regency after them, their only hope is to relinquish the Aura. Making alliances they would never have dreamt of, they find themselves swept up into a struggle against the kingdom they once called their own.

This book is the first of a series, but according to the author the books are all going to be standalone. I hope there is a lot of crossover between characters however, because I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book.

The main characters are Saera and Eoin, siblings who are always there for each other–and it’s not always easy because Saera has been “gifted” with powers from one of the deities of the land. In the kingdom they live in, this is definitely a problem. Their only chance of survival comes from getting to another kingdom–one that is more tolerant of the Auras than their own. But, that’s easier said than done.

Mr. Sullivan has created a wonderful world and I’m very much looking forward to his next book in this series. And, like I said, I certainly hope I get more opportunities to see the characters in this book. I was sorry to put the book down once I was finished.
