Marim has discovered the forgotten source of magic on Cynnes Tarth, but she's also awakened the ire of the islanders who preferred their life the way it was. As her employer's business begins to fail and the town shuns her and the boy whose life she saved, Marim beings to suspect there is a deeper secret still being held close to the island's heart. When an angry mob rises up to protest the presence of a Tessilar among them, Marim must decide whether to stay and fight, or flee back to Masidon with her questions unanswered.
