Harnessing the magic of the elements passed down to her through the centuries, Ava works frantically to discover the true intentions of the tattooed stranger. But she is not the only one with mysterious powers and she finds herself thwarted at every turn. Hunter and hunted engage in an intricate game of cat and mouse—unaware that a much larger war is brewing, a war that will be decided by the outcome of their struggle.
