Favorite Quote: “I dedicated my life to my king. I should have dedicated it to you. “

McKenzie Lewis is a Nalkin-Shom-a shadow witch. She has a special gift that allows her to see and track the Fae by “reading” the shadows they leave behind when fissuring (teleporting). This gift has cost her family and friends; they believe her insane. From the time she was 16 years old till now (she’s 26) she has been in service to the King of the Fae, working to help track and capture the rebels who are bent on overthrowing the realm. She has also spent the last 10 years in love with the king’s sword-master; Kyol. She knows nothing can come of it, relations between humans and fae are forbidden yet she holds on against hope that someday they can be together.

McKenzie has been toying with the idea of retiring and begins taking collage courses to prepare herself for a normal life. When she is kidnapped by the fae rebel leader, Aren, that dream is shattered. He begins to show her the lies and half truths she has been told by the King. She finds herself starting to question everything she has ever known about the fae, it’s king, and her beloved sword master. When the war threatens to spill into the human realm, McKenzie has to choose who’ll she stand by during this devastating war for power.
