Amala lives in a world where light is the ghost of a world. Beasts, demons, vampires, and witches - these are the rulers of this dark, dangerous land. They run rampant within the Infinite Circle, a mysterious forest where people often don't come back from if they venture in. The only reason people still go is because the potent silver-bane blossom, the only protection against evil the townsfolk know of, lies in its shady depths. Amala lives in one of the three towns, beloved by her brother and mother. When she is drafted to become a Guardian of Slayer - a protector against evil - she thinks things can't get any stranger or more magical. She couldn't be more wrong... Amala makes shocking discoveries of a dark scandal, an ancient rebellion, a life before the darkness...and maybe even a way to bring back the light. Amala finds trust, friendship, and ultimately, betrayal, in this detailed account of her quest for truth. She is embroiled into a century-old secret, but there are terrible consequences and dangers that even she isn't prepared to face.
