Dark choices for good reasons...
As the Dark Trine’s noose tightens around Kinderra, young Trine Mirana Pinal and her mentor, the Trine hero Tetric Garis, embark on a quest to learn how the enigmatic watchtower of Jasal’s Keep once saved the land.
Teague Beltran, Mirana’s beloved and an Unaspected herbsman’s apprentice, wants nothing more than to kill the Dark Trine himself. As one born without magical powers, however, he is forbidden to take up arms in battle. His confrontation with the Dark Trine’s forces may force him to sacrifice his healing oath.
Mirana fears using her Aspects with the Light from Within will not be enough to save her people. The strength of her Aspects through the Power from Without, however, will lead her down a path she must not follow.
Both must answer their true calling but each choice may leave them—and Kinderra—without hope.
Not all gifts are blessings...
Sixteen-summer-old Mirana Pinal is one of the few to have ever possessed all three magical powers of the Aspects—Defening, Seeing, and Healing. She has terrifying visions, however, that if she wields her powers, her homeland of Kinderra will be destroyed—through her. Desperate to keep her dark fate from unfolding, she tells no one about her destructive destiny but her beloved Teague Beltran, a young apprentice herbsman born without powers.
When Mirana receives alarming premonitions of an enemy attack on Kinderra, she is forced to reveal to her people that she is a Trine to warn them of the impending assault.
As the Kinderrans fight to hold armies of a cunning and ruthless enemy warlord at bay, Mirana must decide if using her powers will aid her people—or will bring them more peril.

Now is the moment of choice...
Betrayed by the man she once worshipped, Mirana Pinal must finish the quest for Jasal’s Keep with help of an enemy. As she races to save her people, the Fal'kin infiltrate the Dark Trine's stronghold to discover the warlord's plans for conquest.
For Teague Beltran, however, the mission is much more personal. His mother has been captured by the Ken’nar, and he will stop at nothing to rescue her.
If Mirana gives the Dark Trine the key to the Keep’s power, she can save Kinderra from destruction but would put her homeland into the hands of a tyrant.
If she finds a way to unleash the Keep’s power herself, she can defeat the Dark Trine, but she must sacrifice her beloved Teague — and far more.
At last, her destiny is upon her.
