Garnet Rune is a powerful sorcerer with a bad attitude. But she finally runs into trouble she can’t just fight or talk her way out of when she angers a witch who curses her with a nasty spell that causes black marks to appear on her body every time she uses her magic–and when the marks cover her completely, she’ll die. Through her quest to either get the witch to remove the curse, or find her own way around it, Garnet Rune is well on her way to having some spectacular adventures…with some quite intriguing traveling companions!
A skilled warrior with a dark secret in his past, Adamas winds up joining Garnet Rune on her journey through serving as Yeran’s bodyguard. While their relationship is initially rocky, to say the least, Adamas soon finds himself oddly drawn to Garnet…
Sweet, perky, and extremely gullible, Yeran is the grandson of the witch who cursed Garnet Rune…and thus he winds up drawn into her scheme to get rid of the curse, potentially by holding him as hostage in exchange for the curse’s removal! Of course, Yeran is completely oblivious to Garnet’s machinations…or is he?
