In a small village in the nation of Droevinka, orphaned sisters Celine and Amelie Fawe scrape out a living selling herbal medicines in their apothecary shop. Celine earns additional money by posing as a seer and pretending to read people's futures.

But they exist in a land of great noble houses, all vying for power, and when the sisters refuse the orders of a warlord prince, they must flee and are forced to depend on the warlord prince's brother, Anton, for a temporary haven.

A series of bizarre deaths of pretty young girls is plaguing the village surrounding Prince Anton's castle. He offers Celine and Amelie permanent protection if they can use their "skills" to find the killer.

With little choice, the sisters enter a world unknown to them-of fine gowns and banquets and advances from powerful men. Their survival depends on catching a murderer who appears to walk through walls and vanish without a trace-and the danger grows with each passing night.

Fast read (didn't want to put it down) that was very enjoyable - good characters in Celine and Amelie. Another winning series by Barb Hendee.

Another great series by Barb Hendee. I do hope that there will be many more to follow. I really enjoyed the story and love Celine and Amalie.

good action in the beginning, but as soon as it turned into palace intrigue, I lost all interest. Failed the 50 page test.
