Finally, finally he looked her way. His feet stilled, and his bare chest rose and fell with harsh breaths. Even from so far away, Liadan could see him shivering. She waved for him to come back inside, praying she wouldn’t have to ride into Aegiros with his dead body slung over Tarabas’ back.

Tir tilted his face up, catching the icy rain a moment longer to defy her. When he stalked back into the cottage, he flung his daggers to the floor and backed her against the wall.

Liadan felt the chill radiating off his skin. He had to be freezing. For his sake, she flicked her hand toward the fire to stoke it hotter. Without a log to keep it burning, it wouldn’t last long, but at least the small burst of heat would help him recover faster.

Instead of gratitude, his face contorted into a snarl. “I do not fear cold,” he spat. “I do not fear rain, or ice, or your thunderstorms.”

The Imarah tribe is dying. The gods have abandoned them; demons feast on their souls in the night, and when morning dawns, murderous raiders pick off those still left alive. As the prince of his people, Tir is determined to break the curse. But when the enemy he imagines in Wilderheim turns out to be the last chance for his tribe’s survival, everything changes. Princess Liadan is shameless, reckless, dangerous, and unpredictable. She is the spawn of their enemy. Imarah will never accept her. They may not have another choice, if they want to live.

Difficult trials lie ahead for Tir and Liadan—of mind, body, and soul. But the worst is one they never expected: a trial of the heart. A bond between them can only lead to tragedy the likes of which they are both determined to avoid, but it seems the merciless desert has other plans. One thing alone is certain: When demons fly, the world will burn…
