In a remarkable debut - dynamic, expressive, and entirely distinctive - Victoria James weaves a tale of adventure and self discovery, bringing to life unique characters and a heroine whose journey forces her to see who she is and what she is capable of. The year is 1666 and Jillian dreams of a life of adventure beyond the barriers of her seemingly normal existence. In an instant, her simple life vanishes when she is taken by pirates on a journey where Jillian discovers who she truly is. Met with danger and adventure beyond her wildest dreams, Jillian finds that she has powers and abilities that she doesn't fully understand. She finds love with Gavin, the handsome first mate, and when they first consummate their love, unbeknownst to them, a family prophecy is fulfilled; a prophecy that holds captive, a family of women who are the keepers of the souls. Terrance, the Captain of the Pegasus, fell in love with Sybil Chandler the first moment he saw her seventeen years before. His mission was to take Sybil and Jillian with him to live as a family. But, when Sybil refused to come, he was left with no choice but to leave without her and take only Jillian. Little did he know that his actions would not only change his life but cause a chain of events that would guide them all on a voyage of enchantment and danger. Evil finds its way into their lives. Through unimaginable strife, adventure and survival, Jillian lives to discover how to use her powers to conquer the evil that is determined to destroy them all and become a part of her forever.
