Years before the Whispering War, there was a girl named Olivia.
Her family murdered, her home destroyed — a darkness she can’t control. Olivia has never quite fit in amongst the lords and ladies of the seas… but things are about to get worse. Forced into the service of a powerful enemy, she must use her gifts to kill. The darkness grows fiercer with every step; each murder drags her closer to edge of villainy. Only one force in the Kingdom might have the power to save her, but she knows it’s too late. Olivia has already fallen to the darkness — into the jaws of a monster she calls The Poison.
