    Ross' romantic stand-alone fantasy follows two sisters who come together to save their queen from an insidious enchantment. Seventeen-year-old Evadne hasn't seen her older sister, Halcyon, in years, not since Halcyon left their olive grove to become a hoplite in the Legion. Halcyon's return visit should be a joyous occasion, but instead she is put on trial for murder by her commander, Lord Straton. Evadne, sure there's more to the story, volunteers to share Halcyon's sentence. While Halcyon is sent to manual labor, where she runs afoul of a cunning traitor, Evadne serves Straton's household. Straton's son Damon, a mage, recruits her to continue Halcyon's secret mission: locating a divine relic that could free Queen Nerine from an evil mage's control. Ross' heroic epic is vividly inspired by ancient Greece, down to its poetic language. Evadne and Halcyon's relationship is a joy, as they find strength and bravery in their love for each other. While the story lacks suspense, as difficult and dangerous situations are often resolved quickly, it revels in intricate plotting, political intrigue, and fascinating divinity-based magic.
