He comes into her small town of Port Lawson like a hurricane stirring up a whirlwind of desire amongst the women and in Dia herself – something she’s determined to ignore.

As the Games unfold on the island of Sotirìa, Dia finds herself claimed as a Chosen, unlocking the secrets of a haunted past – a ghostly world of death, grief and betrayal which threatens to split her soul and allow the darkness that claimed her childhood to overwhelm her.

Dia is determined not to allow betrayal to break her as it did her mother, but abandoned by Lia Davies, the woman she once thought of as a sister, her only ally in the Games is Jaxon. But he is the Kyrion Eros, leader of the Paldimori House of Arrows. Can Dia trust a man who is the physical embodiment of the fickle god of love and fleeting sexual desire? Can she tame the powers within and find her true light before darkness overtakes her and destroys them all?
