In the prequel to the stunning Deadglass trilogy, a fascinating paranormal series, one woman's desire for a forbidden man will spark a centuries-long supernatural conflict-and a love nothing can destroy. She's the heiress to Seattle's most powerful shifter clan. Her destiny is as controlled and certain as moonrise. However, from the moment Alice Corbette encounters the man known as Brand, she will defy all constraints, breaking every rule in the book to make this dragon-shifter hers. Brand is determined to repay the clan leader he owes his life to, but one taste of Alice's exquisite spirit will make him question his loyalty-and plunge them both into the middle of a ruthless power play. Their only chance at freedom is a gamble that could risk the future of humans and shifters alike.
