What began as a fight to survive prejudice and persecution in one small town has become a war that will determine the fates of all. Worlds will endure or fall based on the courage, determination, and luck of the sevens and their allies. For Cecily, this battle has never been more personal, as Sources—with infinite power and cruelty—aim to conquer her and all she loves. If Cecily fails, reason, goodness, love, and peace will be the casualties, along with the souls of all who live and die on worlds devoid of mercy. Unbeknownst to them, many of the sevens are already caught in webs spun by their enemies, treacheries wrought long before the seven girls took their first steps in Dunlowe. With battles already raging, the greatest struggle is to keep hope alive. For without hope, darkness wins.
