Tarishandra is marked to be the guardian and future protector of all the Viators in Deluna, and she bears the special wrist-to-elbow markings to prove it. In a few short weeks, she will inherit the special powers of their world and the ability to connect to it in a way no other can. But Tarishandra rejects her role of Scion. All she wants is her freedom-freedom from her quarreling family and freedom from her responsibilities. After a grave error in judgment and a scandalous betrayal by her treacherous brother Archus, Tarishandra is exiled to walk on the planet Earth among mortals for the rest of her days. Deluna is barely a memory-until the two worlds begin to collide centuries later. With Deluna in ruin, teeming with demonic anarchy, greed, and mutiny, Tarishandra knows she must answer the call and finally claim her birthright as the Scion of Deluna. Her people are suffering, and they need her. And what she needs most is redemption.
