Leo could always make people believe anything she says—really believe. When her chest burns and the words come from her mouth, her targets’ eyes glaze over, they forget their own thoughts, and they’ll do anything she says.

One Blood of the Veil still walks, and he has learned to listen. Freed from the unending torment of the violet mists and his forty-eight deaths within the void, Kherron has reentered the world an entirely different man.
