"You can't escape the past. It is a part of who you are; it has shaped you now, it will shape your future. It is the shadow behind you. Who you once were is still a part of who you are today. This, I now understand. My name is Gracelynn Stevenson. I tried to destroy the Lost Magic. I tried to erase the past. I tried to make things go back to the way that they once were. I failed. And now all the happiness I thought I had found has been lost to the shadows…"Gracelynn is starting to remember all that she thought she left behind. So is Sebastian, although his memories are so painful that he's fighting with everything he has to leave them in the past. But Gracelynn has no choice: the spirits are calling her to lead a group of those who also possess the Lost Magic to fight an evil that is lurking too close. An evil that only she can overcome.
