Saffron Coulter steps through a hole in reality and finds herself trapped in Kena, a magical realm on the brink of war. There, her fate becomes intertwined with that of three very different women: Zech, the fast-thinking acolyte of a cunning, powerful exile; Viya, the spoiled, runaway consort of the empire-building ruler, Vex Leoden; and Gwen, an Earth-born worldwalker whose greatest regret is putting Leoden on the throne. Saffron is out of her world and depth, yet soon finds herself to be the heart and key of Kena’s bloody conflict.
