       Additional Information  
      Fern has lived half her life in fear of the Shadows, predatory creatures who move within the darkness and whose touch means death. When she discovers she has the legendary gift of fire-starting, she knows she may hold the key to their destruction.
    But the unpredictable gift is curse as well as blessing. Fern must learn and learn fast how to use it. To do so she needs the help of Nik, the enigmatic magician who seems to understand her gift better than she does herself.

    From the moment they meet, sparks fly sometimes literally. Nik makes her lose her temper faster than anyone else can, but he understands her better than anyone else, too. Fern realizes something she didn't look for and didn't expect she's falling in love with him.

    But can Nik be trusted? Or is he hiding secrets of his own?
