In this fantasy book, Keleios is master enchanter and master dreamer who suddenly finds herself having to go back to magic school at twenty when she suddenly finds herself to have sorcery as well. A half-elf princess whose mother was murdered in front of her eyes at the age of five, Keleios has sought revenge against the witch for years. At seventeen, her thirst for revenge caused the capture of herself and her close friend Belor and ended with them having to survive a demon pit and the demon marks with which they came out of it. Now she finds herself and the others at her school the targets of political intrigue and revenge that may end with everyone she cares about dead and herself once again the tortured captive of the demons. She also has to deal with the black healer prince Lothor who wants to either marry or kill her.

Hamilton's debut novel is set in a fascinating world and is full of the action and complex twists and turns among relationships that you find in many other novels. Keleios is a complicated character, constantly fighting a battle between her desire to be good and the power she finds herself able to wield.
