Seeing the future is easy—changing it is next to impossible. Phillipe possesses a rare, dangerous gift: the ability to see the myriad possible futures. Called back from exile to a beleaguered court, Phillipe foresees disaster for the duchy and its people, unless he can guide the young Duke onto an alternate path. With most choices leading to bloodshed and destruction, the duchy’s only hope lies with the Lady Zuli—who refuses to believe a word Phillipe says. The danger increases as Phillipe makes one perilous psychic journey after another, and Zuli sets her own desperate, opposing plans into motion.

Chapter One

Metal glinted in the pale spring sunshine—swords, knives, the polished rings on the tack of the oncoming horses. The invaders swarmed up the hill toward the house, sweeping the duke’s guard aside like chaff. Gouts of blood splashed onto the sweet young grass, bright flowers of carnage, as the defenders fought and fell and died.
