Akane has accepted she is nothing. Until she happens upon a dying demigod in the forest, and for once, perhaps for the first time, she chooses herself. Over twelve hundred years later, Akane is oath-bound to protect the most powerful mortal in history, the witchlord Ethan Mettles. All is not well in the House of Mettles nor with any of the remaining witchlords. Hunted by the Church and exterminated as a threat to God and humanity, these crumbling pillars of magic cling furiously to their remaining power and to their fragile allegiances. The Mettles family stands at the center of it all. Now, the Balance is poised to shift once more with the birth of Ethan's daughter, a prize more valuable than any amount of power, and a birth that will weaken Akane considerably. With the Houses upon the razor's edge of war, Akane must discover who has infiltrated the family, who can be trusted, and how to protect the child before she no longer can. Will Akane uncover the plot to bring down House Mettles? Or will she have to sacrifice everything and rewrite her fate once more?
