Magic passed through ancient bloodlines for generations. A powerful family gifted with Elf, Fae, and Human magic, the McShaynes watched over the balance of nature. While the Otherkin receded from any mortal connection, the McShaynes refuse to leave their ancestral lands. Until the Humans turn against magic.
Four McShayne sons spread across the lands. Each one fears he is the last. They fight to survive the harsh atmosphere, maintain their their bloodline gifts, and discover love and the true meaning of family.
Betrayed, Morric McShayne, a bloodline elemental witch, wakes during a lightning storm, bound to a post—the latest sacrifice to appease a dragon. He swears to survive as the last McShayne and there is no dragon until a powerful claw plucks him away from the precipice.
With every equinox, the dragon’s keeper, Xavier, pushes back the loneliness. The keeper holds a secret until magic flares. This sacrifice is different.
They battle desire and duty. When a single kiss changes everything, can the Fae help them answer more secrets and a legend’s promise? Do they fight against Fate’s choice?
A darkness encroaches the lands. Otherkin are disappearing. Towns attacked.

Needing help to help Larkin McShayne, he contacts another McShayne witch and his dragon. With their assistance, they try to draw Larkin out of the tangled lands and back to reality.
Only there is more to the witch, to the prince, and what faces the Court.
