Deep in the heart of Loralin Forest, folks whisper of a legendary immortal predator with the body of a male god, towering black wings and the claws and fangs of a mountain cat. Crowharrow, they call it. But one family of troubled wizards knows the winged hunter is not a legend. The youngest, a woman named Tansel, has been sheltered all her life by solitude and the secrets of her ancestors. A diabolical seducer and destroyer of women, the beautiful immortal notices Tansel and ushers her, the last of her kin and two of the most powerful wizards in the land into a maelstrom of peril, deception, and upheaval that exposes a devastating connection between the crowharrow and Tansel's bloodline. Her world shattered by awakened desire and the loss of her innocence, Tansel must heal this curse by discovering her strength as a woman, her true roots, and her destiny as a healer.
