The half-breed daughter of an elvish prince and a gypsy lady - she'd heard it said that a match between an angel and an incubus was better suited - Tyriel fought evil and traveled her world as a hired sword with all the passion of the gypsies. She had grown used to hiding her loneliness behind laughter and magick. Until Aryn, the powerful, sinfully seductive swordsman catches her eye, her heart and her soul. Only he isn't in love with her, though something inside of him is drawn to her. When a deadly evil from their past comes stalking Tyriel, Aryn must look deep inside himself to find the truth. The problem will be finding the answer in time. Because Tyriel's time is running out.
