(From the publisher):
Demons are coming. One woman has been chosen to face them....
Demon hordes still threaten the Kingdom while open rebellion has broken out within its cities, separating Kallista from her new family.
Assassination attempts, magical attacks — she's surrounded by devastation unlike anything she's ever known, and her unique magic power no longer works as it should. Yet her own pain must yield to the needs of her country, for this military mage is charged with searching the four directions of the world for the other "Godmarked" — the only ones who can help her keep demon invaders from shattering her world. But can she find them in time?
