* * *

On a distant world, four powerful families are engaged in a struggle for supremacy—a struggle complicated by the supernatural abilities their members are developing.

When Avalys is voted in as the youngest member of the Enkeli family council, she knows her life is at stake. Tyson, the leader of the Akuma family, has wanted her dead for seven years since she spurned him. Driven by hatred and fear, he sends Jayd, an allied leader, to eliminate her.

But Jayd makes the fateful mistake of getting too close to his target and soon realizes that he can never go through with his mission.

Together, Avalys and Jayd explore their new abilities to manipulate the very fabric of reality and their love for each other. But when Tyson opens a portal to another dimension and makes an unholy alliance with the demonic entities of that sphere, all hope for peace seems lost. Avalys must decide what to sacrifice if her newfound hope in the future is to triumph over the darkest despair.

Raven's Eye

Ever since magic caused his mother’s death, Ha-Neul hates witches and the powers they wield. As crown prince of Balhae, he has instituted harsh laws against all magic users.

When Lisa, a young witch who hopes to gain freedom for her people, begins working undercover as a servant in his palace, the last thing the two expect is to fall in love. However, when Ha-Neul learns that Lisa is not only a witch but daughter of the prince of Vires, land of witches, he banishes her. Distracted by his heartbreak, he’s caught off guard by a military coup.

In hiding and on the run, Ha-Neul swallows his pride and travels with his siblings to Vires, planning to beg Lisa’s aid, only to learn she has mysteriously vanished.

Now his only hope in reclaiming his kingdom and reuniting with Lisa lies in the remote Northern Mountains, a country no outsider has ever accessed and rumored home of a formidable source of magic. There, Ha-Neul learns that a being powerful beyond comprehension is willing to help him in his quest. But if Ha-Neul can’t let go of his hatred of all things magic and accept the new path offered him, it will mean the destruction of his entire world.
