Selene Ravenwood, once the heir to House Ravenwood, is now an exile. On the run and free of her family's destiny, Selene hopes to find the real reason her family was given the gift of dreamwalking. But first she must adapt to her new life as wife to Lord Damien Maris, the man she was originally assigned to kill. 

While adjusting to her marriage and her home in the north, her power over dreams begins to grow. As the strongest dreamwalker to exist in ages, her expanding power attracts not only nightmares but the attention of the Dark Lady herself.

With a war looming on the horizon and a wicked being after her gift, Selene is faced with a choice: embrace the Dark Lady's offer, or search out the one who gave her the gift of dreamwalking. One path offers power, the other offers freedom. But time is running out, and soon her choice will be made for her.

“The women of my family found a better purpose for our gift, one that brought power and gold to House Ravenwood, and ensured that our house would never fall again.”
The hairs along his arms and neck rose. “What was that purpose?” he said quietly.
“We use our gift to kill through dreams.”
Silence filled the library. The tingling along his neck and arms expanded across his entire body, sending a shiver up his spine as his mind tried to comprehend Selene’s words. The Ravenwood gift of dreaming . . . had been turned to killing?
Assassinations . . . random deaths over the years . . . the rise of House Ravenwood . . . Caiaphas’s veiled hints . . .
“Is that how your ancestor Rabanna was able to escape the empire? By . . . by . . .”
“By killing? Yes.”
Damien swallowed. “And when you say power and gold, you mean . . .”
She curled her lip. “There is a lot of money to be made in secrets and assassinations. Enough to help our people when the mines dried up.”
Her eyes grew hard. “Dreamwalking allows us to reach inside a person’s mind and memories. Powerful people are willing to pay a great deal of money for that kind of information.”
“I see.” Damien’s mind was spinning. Not only could House Ravenwood enter a person’s dreams. They could see the person’s thoughts—or kill them. Their gift could well be one of the most powerful ones amongst the Great Houses. And no one knew. Except Caiaphas and now himself, and whomever else Lady Ragna might have told.
Selene let out a sorrowful laugh and tugged at the corner of her sleeve. “Now you know our secret.”
He looked up. “So that night, when I found you beside my bed, you were there to kill me. Not with your swords, but with . . .” He couldn’t say it. He couldn’t wrap his mind around it.
“Yes. I was there to assassinate you. Inside your dreams.” Her voice was cold and quiet.
Dear Light! Damien held his head in his hands. Their bonding had only revealed that she could dreamwalk, not what House Ravenwood had done with that gift. This was not at all what he had been expecting when he asked her about her gift. How should he respond? What should he do?

November 6th 2018 by Bethany House Publishers


Lady Selene is the heir to the Great House of Ravenwood and the secret family gift of dreamwalking. As a dreamwalker, she can enter a person’s dreams and manipulate their greatest fears or desires. For the last hundred years, the Ravenwood women have used their gift of dreaming for hire to gather information or to assassinate.

As she discovers her family’s dark secret, Selene is torn between upholding her family’s legacy–a legacy that supports her people–or seeking the true reason behind her family’s gift.

Her dilemma comes to a head when she is tasked with assassinating the one man who can bring peace to the nations, but who will also bring about the downfall of her own house.

One path holds glory and power, and will solidify her position as Lady of Ravenwood. The other path holds shame and execution. Which will she choose? And is she willing to pay the price for the path chosen?
