Jane Weston only wanted to save her best and only friend Margaret from Russell's merciless teasing. But dabbling in the dark Tuathan magic isn't the way to go. The dark magic is tricky--you get what you want quickly, but lose what you love. In the balance of the magic, every plan has a price. Jane's trip to the Forest of Souls in Book 1 saved her Grandmother Ounatha, but it also kindled Maeve's vengeance. The Dark Princess conjured up terror in the Forest of Souls and sent the demon Balor to stalk the woods of Rath Haven. Jane is going to need some help, and not just from Jack, who's learned a little too late some of the pitfalls surrounding his own Averien powers. He had no idea an innocent first kiss could get him into so much trouble. This time, the price of the magic to set things right may be more than Jane and Jack are willing to pay.
