Unbeknownst to mortals, a power struggle is unfolding in a world
of shadows and danger. After centuries of stability, the balance
among the Faery Courts has altered, and Irial, ruler of the Dark
Court, is battling to hold his rebellious and newly vulnerable fey
together. If he fails, bloodshed and brutality will follow.
Seventeen-year-old Leslie knows nothing of faeries or their
intrigues. When she is attracted to an eerily beautiful tattoo of
eyes and wings, all she knows is that she has to have it, convinced
it is a tangible symbol of changes she desperately craves for her
The tattoo does bring changes-not the kind Leslie has dreamed
of, but sinister, compelling changes that are more than symbolic.
Those changes will bind Leslie and Irial together, drawing Leslie
deeper and deeper into the faery world, unable to resist its
allures, and helpless to withstand its perils. . . .
