Audrey Taylor has carved a living out of society’s fringes using her supernatural abilities and street smarts. Freedom—sleeping beneath the open skies and under the radar—is all she’s ever needed. But when an ancient council of witches discovers her powers, Audrey must submit to their training or be stripped of her gifts and her memory. Audrey knows better than to trust anyone, and she’s never worked well with others, so it’s just her luck to be assigned a withdrawn and irritable falconer as her mentor. Even more disturbing is her desire to tear through his brooding façade and bare the man beneath when she should be focused on escape.
Corvin Wright values the solace of his duties and only finds peace among the birds entrusted to his keeping. But the council no longer sees a use for his unique gifts, and his sanctuary is in danger unless he can earn his place by babysitting a fledgling witch. The task becomes daunting when his apprentice turns out to be wilder and more broken than any creature he’s ever cared for. Her fiery spirit and dangerous beauty challenge every ideal of the life he’s built. As Audrey wrestles with her captivity and the bonds of responsibility laid upon her, Corvin must find a way to tame her wild heart before she breaks his.
Audrey has spent her life on the streets, flying under the radar as much as possible. She trusts and relies on no one, least of all people holding her captive, so she's more than a little suspicious of the group of witches claiming to know more about her birthright than she does. Corvin, though, is an enigma that quickly gets under her skin, and for the first time, she can picture a future with someone else in it.
Corvin has lived a life of duty and sacrifice, staying beneath the Council's notice while still benefiting from the privilege of his family name. He keeps to himself and prefers it that way, until his reclusive lifestyle is threatened and he's forced to take a more active role. But when Audrey comes to him, broken and scared despite her tough front, his natural instincts to protect and heal kick in. The more time they spend together, the harder he finds it to not get involved, despite the risks.
Smoke is Corvin's constant companion, alarm clock, and conscience. He makes sure things at the falconry tower run smoothly, and reports back to Corvin with all the relevant news and gossip from the main fortress. He accepts payment in neck scratches and blueberry scones.
In the heart of the Trinity National Forest, among trees that have stood for over a thousand years, hidden behind wards and veils of magic, one of 13 North American Arcanum fortresses stands watch over the territory of the western United States.
Arcanum fortresses are built upon nodes of power, where currents of magic converge. They are protected by spells, veils, and wards to hide them from mundane discovery and are the domain of the Synod--the governing body of the Zyne. Some have special training facilities, and all are fortified to protect the vaults where the magical items and texts that comprise the Legacy are held.
