But Alivet Dee, an alchemist, canít help but question the Lordsí rule ever since her twin sister was taken to serve in their palace.

Sequestered in Ghairenís fortress laboratory, lied to by both her new ally and his daughterís enigmatic governess, Alivet doesnít know whom to trust or where to turn for answers. But driven to undo her sisterís fate, Alivet races to hone her skills in time--even as time runs out.
