Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

An Amazon Best Book of the Month selection

A spellbinding story of truce and trickery from the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Paper Magician series.

Enna knows to fear the mystings that roam the wildwood near her home. When one tries to kill her to obtain an enchanted stone, Enna takes a huge risk: fighting back with a mysting of her own.

Maekallus’s help isn’t free. His price? A kiss. One with the power to steal her soul. But their deal leaves Maekallus bound to the mortal realm, which begins eating him alive. Only Enna’s kiss, given willingly, can save him from immediate destruction. It’s a temporary salvation for Maekallus and a lingering doom for Enna. Part of her soul now burns bright inside Maekallus, making him feel for the first time.

Enna shares Maekallus’s suffering, but her small sacrifice won’t last long. If she and Maekallus can’t break the spell binding him to the mortal realm, Maekallus will be consumed completely—and Enna’s soul with him.

Editorial Reviews

“A story full of myth and magic flawlessly narrated by Angela Dawe…Dawe’s narration draws listeners deep into the tale, keeping them engaged. It’s surprising to realize that only one person performs all of the characters. Dawe uses unique voices, imbuing each character with the traits described within the text. Particularly noteworthy is her voice for Maekallus…Dawe’s performance is nothing short of stunning. She makes this listening experience as magical as the story itself. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
…An immersive, dangerous fantasy world. Holmberg draws readers in with a fast-moving plot, rich details, and a surprisingly sweet human-monster romance. This is a lovely, memorable fairy tale. Publishers Weekly
Holmberg ably builds her latest fantasy world, and her brisk narrative and the romance at its heart will please fans of her previous magical tales. Booklist
“In this variation on ‘the Beauty and the Beast’ themes, Holmberg zeroes in on two isolated heroes, allowing their relationship to gradually progress while they explore their feelings and seek information about the stone.” Library Journal
