Author: Jennifer Brozek
Welcome to the City of Waiting. Welcome to Shadeside. From the moment Jane enters Shadeside, she is a pawn in a dangerous game between rivals. With no real memory of who she is or where she came from, Jane embarks on a quest to discover her past as well discover who it is she promised to meet.
Along the way, she is protected by guardsman Derax, counseled by Lady Ellowyn, and warned of plots and betrayal by the most powerful oracle in the city. Through her travels, Jane meets a myriad of strange, wonderful, and terrible people. By the end, she believes the city itself has a stake in her quest as if there was any doubt.
