Eva is turning seventeen in a months time which means her life will be over soon. At least that's what her sister, Isa, and everyone else thinks. Without the use of her rare magick, she does not stand a chance against her very advanced older sister.
In a story where we are introduced to a character that SHOULD be the most powerful being in her kingdom but isn't, this was a very refreshing take on YA Fantasy. Eva hates her powers, loathes them, and would rather die than be in control of something that was once used to subjugate and discriminate long before her time. She accepts her fate, hell, she even proudly seems to enjoy her final days until she realizes she has work to do.
