Rune magic, time travel, transformation: Sky's grandfather opened up a world of limitless possibility... then asked the impossible. He asked Sky to kill a man.
Sky and Kristin know they have to stop Sigurd. But how, when he can possess any person, any beast, at will? Once more, the answer is to be found back along the bloodlines.
