As the Shadonae rise in the west and war threatens the north, a young woman discovers she is not human.
Banished from her village, Rowen Mar finds sanctuary in
the White City using a leather glove to cover the strange mark on her
hand. She lives in fear that if she touches another person, the power
inside her will trigger again, a terrifying power that allows her to see
the darkness inside the human heart. But those called cannot hide
forever, for the salvation of her people lies within her hand.
