It’s not safe to be a healer, but that’s precisely what Avry is and precisely why she has been in hiding for over two years. Living in a world where there are eleven types of power, Avry is part of the group (the healers) who are blamed for a plague which has wiped out many millions of people. Avry can’t completely curb her desire to help people though, and it’s when she heals a child that she is caught. Fortunately, or not, she is abducted before her execution and taken to help a plague-stricken prince. It is not an easy decision for Avry and on the dangerous journey across the mountains to his camp she must decide where her loyalties lie.
