All her life, Dara has been followed by the Woman In Grey, a mysterious figure whose presence Dara sees in her prophetic visions. But she still manages to leave a quiet life on the Montana homestead with her family—a fact which is beginning to chafe Dara’s restless spirit. Torn between her hunger for new horizons, and her love for her two mothers, matters come to a head when the Woman in Grey finally corners Dara and announces they have a job to do—not to save the world, of course, don’t be so arrogant—but still vital in keeping the world in order.
It’s not a very grand sounding destiny, but with the choice before her, Dara grasps the nettle and follows the Woman to Camp Leon, where a troupe of vigilantes attempt to bring safety and order to a wild lawless town. Dara’s prophetic visions will be invaluable in tracking down a gang of road agents, led by a murdering psychopath who binds his men to him with cold violence and blood magic.
Dara is keen to taste adventure and bring down the gang, particularly after witnessing their brutality first-hand. But camp life is very different from farm life, and while she struggles with homesickness and wondering if this really is the escape she wanted, there are others who will do whatever it takes to use her magic for their own ends. Dara has always managed to take care of herself, but when her own spirit and power betray her, it seems impossible she’ll manage to even keep herself safe, never mind fulfil a destiny she’s lost all faith in.
