In 1432 Portugal, Lianna Reinel lives with her Aunt and Uncle in a small secret enclave of magical beings called Cartos. Long ago the Cartos race held dominion over the earth and could rewrite it at will. Their arrogance led to a cataclysm, the end of all things, and the human racial memory of demons. It also led to a Cartos Edict against the use of their magick.
Lianna’s forbidden love for a human boy, Gil Eannes, and the arrival of Prince Henrique of Portugal who needs an alliance with Lianna’s uncle to finance a holy war, leads to Gil’s banishment on a deadly journey to the actual end of the earth. Forced to choose between her love or obedience, Lianna wakens old magick and then must face the consequences: Fire. Water. Pestilence.
And lost love.
