united beneath the Tsar. Magic has been outlawed, its power too
dangerous to remain unchecked. All Magickers must surrender
themselves to the crown, or face imprisonment and death.

brother’s magic. Now they must leave behind everything they’ve ever
known and flee – before the Tsar’s Stalkers pick up their trail.
Tasked with hunting down renegade Magickers, the merciless hunters
will stop at nothing to bring them before the Tsar’s judgement.



the noose closes around Alana and her brother, disgraced hero Devon
finds himself at odds with the law when he picks a fight with the
wrong man. The former warrior has set aside his weapons, but now,
caught between the renegades and the Stalkers, he is forced to pick a
side – the empire, or the innocent.
