Only one person can save the kingdom from utter darkness—but it will take a power she can’t control.
The dragon kingdom of Alveria has enjoyed years of peace under King Lasaro and Queen Kaelan’s reign. But a darkness has been lurking—waiting for the right time to strike. Now a ever-ending darkness falls across the land, and an army of monsters are unleashed from the underworld. As attacks on humans and dragons rise, there’s little the royals can do to protect the people from creatures impervious to magic.
Laini Unclaimed is one of the first to face the terrifying monsters when she saves Prince Cade’s life at the palace. After a lifetime of rejection, all the orphan wants is to find her place as an accepted member of society. But when the realm plunges into eternal night, her uncontrollable—unheard of—power awakens: the power over light and dark.
Despite whispers of suspicion and blame, Laini denies responsibility for the darkness—how could it be her when she doesn’t even understand her powers? Under the king’s guidance, she’s sent to the prestigious Alveria Dragon Akademy to learn control of this newfound magic. But even the strong Akademy walls may not keep Laini safe, for a young dragon hunter lurks in the shadows, watching Laini and biding his time.
Now Laini must discover the source of her powers and banish the darkness covering Alveria—before whispers become a cry for her death.
