The Darkness & Light Trilogy
"You cannot have Light without Darkness any more than you can have day without night."
FIRST OF HER KIND: For Ciara, learning how to control the two powers she possesses before they rip her apart and destroy all she holds dear won't be easy. Especially when there are others who seek to lay claim to them. Others like Donovan, whose past is tightly interwoven with Ciara's, and whose secrets could be her undoing. And then there’s Bolin, the man sworn to protect her. There’s no denying the growing attraction between them, but is it Ciara he wants, or her power?
EMERGENCE: As Ciara's power grows stronger and more chaotic, the Emperor demands Bolin bring her before him. It's a journey made far more difficult with Donovan and his new allies hounding their steps. One of those allies wields a dark magic that has literally gotten under Bolin's skin. When Donovan makes a play for Ciara's power, she must finally embrace all she is or lose everything, and Bolin faces a sacrifice that could well break him.
EDGE OF DARKNESS: In the aftermath of Donovan's attack, Bolin struggles to find peace as he and the Emperor travel to the Greensward, and Ciara is left to face the ire of the Council of Mages unless she can find a way to bring Donovan to justice. There is, however, a greater threat to them all. Darkness has made itself known, and desires to claim all it once was. To do so, it needs to turn Bolin to its side. When Donovan seeks out Ciara, his insistence they need to work together against a common enemy forces her to place trust where she never believed she could.
Loyalties will be tested and lives lost in the battle between Darkness and Light.
