In the second book of the Daughters of Light series, the demon-haunted Seers are in a race against time to return a stolen ring, as the final showdown draws near.
Twin sisters Jade and Jasmine are finally together after a five-year separation, but there’s no time to enjoy the reunion. As Seers, the sisters are being hunted by demons spilling through the rift, and the city is on high alert against terrorist threats. The Protectors at Beaconsfield have gathered as many Seers as possible, and those countries that haven’t been destroyed by climate change are starting to close their borders. On top of it all, Jasmine discovers that someone has stolen a ring with the ability to control the demons, and that the final battle between the Daughters of Light and the forces of darkness is approaching more quickly than anyone predicted.
As the Seers engage in a desperate quest to return the ring and close the rift, tensions slowly grow between the sisters, made worse by Jade’s new boyfriend and the fact that Raphael has returned, but is keeping his distance from Jasmine.
