Lux arrives in idyllic Carlise from hectic London, fleeing a troubled past and into her father's secluded home town.

A secret that has existed for eons is revealed with dire consequences, and she's the center of all of it. A secret that changes everything, and might destroy life as everyone knows it if the Circle doesn't manage to change fate's will.
