 The Guardian Chronicles 

Eleanor, one of the most powerful and gifted Artists, doesn’t give a damn about authority. Or consequences. Or the Inquisitors sent to haul her back – not when the land needs her help. But when she heals a dying crop field and inadvertently triggers a strand of Wild, twisted and tainted magic, it nearly unravels her soul.

The first of many secrets. Secrets the High Artisan will risk silencing even her. Secrets she can’t possibly ignore.

Even if it means her life.

Eleanor spent the last four years in the field, healing the land with her Artist’s Gift, ignoring every summons and demand for her to report back. Eleanor knows she pushed Matron Rhea too far and returns to the Citadel, but even though she left the Citadel and its politics behind, the Artists haven’t forgotten her.

With the Artist’s Gift weakening and fewer children born with the Gift, Rhea plans on using Eleanor as the perfect example – and the perfect breeding mare. To remain free, Eleanor must face her past and turn to the one person who can help, the person who betrayed Eleanor four years ago, the one person Eleanor never wanted to see again.
