Seraph is a Traveler her particular order is Raven who has magical capabilities, when her clan is killed by plague and her brother by superstitious town folk . She is spared from the same fate by the retired soldier Tier who happened to be passing by at the same time. Tier has now been kidnapped and Seraph is on a quest to save her husband from the mages who grabbed him.
I really enjoyed this duology. All of the characters had beautiful development without the plot dragging. I loved the magic system in the series and I love the growth that the characters went through as they were developing. I found the plot engaging and I loved listening to it.
