In a world where Others play with mortal lives, in a hidden province that survives on the backs of abducted slaves, Isabella, one of those stolen folk, sends a message woven into rare cloth made of paper and silk, in the vain hope that her cousin will find it, decipher it and rescue her.
For cousin Nicholas, with whose life the Fates have been playing, only time will tell if he will find her and whether what makes a curse does indeed break a curse.

Consistently ranked in the Amazon Best Seller Lists for Asian mythology, this is Book Four and the conclusion to the highly regarded and unique historical fantasy series, THE CHRONICLES OF EIRIE.
A MUST HAVE as a replete and satisfying conclusion to a series that has unrolled like a bolt of silk.

"Prue Batten weaves her story in such a way that I could not stop turning the pages. It is perhaps the way the story slowly unfolds that makes this book very interesting. The development of the plot does not fail to grab hold of the reader's attention. Alternating between Isabella's and Nicolas' story, we get to know the plot in a most exciting way. The pictures that Prue Batten paints are as vivid as the brush stroke in a canvas. With an eye for detail, she gives us a glimpse of the magnificent imperial house of Han as well as of the rest of her world and its colorful characters. The numerous characters come to life and certainly add color to this story of adventure and magic. Above all, this is a tale of enduring love that balances on the fine line that separates reality and fantasy." Four star review by Maria Beltran for Readers Favorites.
