Chronicling the rise of the Keepers, this is the stunning prequel to Andrea Cremer's internationally bestselling Nightshade trilogy!

Sixteen-year-old Ember Morrow is promised to a group called Conatus after one of their healers saves her mother's life. Once she arrives, Ember finds joy in wielding swords, learning magic, and fighting the encroaching darkness loose in the world. She also finds herself falling in love with her mentor, the dashing, brooding, and powerful Barrow Hess. When the knights realize Eira, one of their leaders, is dabbling in dark magic, Ember and Barrow must choose whether to follow Eira into the nether realm or to pledge their lives to destroying her and her kind.

With action, adventure, magic, and tantalizing sensuality, this book is as fast-paced and breathtaking as the Nightshade novels.

great book especially since ember is the warrior type of women and willing to defend for herself. recommend this if you like adventure and when the female character is the hero

Fantastic start to the Nightshade prequel series. Set in the 1400s, this series will reveal the causes of the ongoing war which takes place in the Nightshade trilogy. Does seem to contain slightly more sexual content/references than the first trilogy.
