The first summer of peace brings Wren on her weekly visit to the young Queen Teressa, where she encounters the mocking, sinister Hawk Rhiscarlan riding in! Wren races to warn Teressa, to discover he was invited. This causes the girls’ first argument.
Tyron gives Wren a chance to leave Meldreth by sending her on a new journeymage project, to find Connor on his wanderings.
When Wren vanishes, her scry stone abandoned, Teressa veers between regret over the argument, worry about Wren, and the conflict between challenge and attraction as Hawk skillfully upsets her court.
Wren has just made friends with some young sailors when they are captured and forced on board a shady smuggler, where Wren learns all about the sea. When pirates attack, Wren does magic, which leads her straight to another confrontation with the villain she hates most, aided by the boy she… what do you call these feelings?
Once again the four—Wren, Teressa, Connor, and Tyron—find themselves deep in adventure, not only magical and courtly, but the dangerous adventure of romance.
