In this sequel to 'Imago Chronicles: Book Three, Tales from the East', eight years have passed since the monumental war that determined the fate of the Elves and mortals of Orien. During this time, Nayla Treeborn has long since retired her weapons of war to embrace her new life as consort to Prince Arerys. Her tranquil existence is shattered when an unseen evil infiltrates the enchanted forest of Wyndwood, stealing away with their only child. Forced to wield her sword once more, Nayla and Arerys must race against time to find their daughter. Calling upon old friends and allies of the Order to search the lands for their precious child, Arerys and Nayla are willing to risk all. Deceived by false trails and hampered by misleading clues, they are confronted by a powerful, dark magic never before encountered. Driven to the breaking point by despair and guilt as she follows a trail of tears, in the end, to spare the life of an innocent child, the sacrifice Nayla must make will not only jeopardize her own life, but the lives of all in Imago.
