eBook Description: Randrik alt Harbinnen isn't above seducing a reluctant woman, but he never thought he'd be doing for his aunt. He didn't know that the forest-wandering race called the Drevnya drew their powers from sexual magic, nor that supressing their emotions and sensuality could be fatal for them. But Perian, the Drevnya Adept raised by abusive human parents who tried to destroy her magical heritage, is more than he bargained for. Her dreams of a voice calling her from the darkness of the void lead both of them into danger they never imagined and a future they don't want. In the distant east, a towering evil has escaped imprisonment in the eternal void of the Everdark, and it is their destiny to seek it out and destroy it before it destroys their world.

Who are you?
That which survives. I am free once again, beloved, and I await your coming. You are my betrothed, my bride--she who will be Great Mother of a new world.
The voice was sweet, warm, and yet it frightened her. Under the honey and the heat she sensed a coldness, a frigid evil crawling with perverse hunger.
No! You lie!
The laughter started softly, a mere whisper. Then, instant by instant, it grew louder, until the dark oblivion that held her shuddered with the noise. She screamed, though she had no voice, and struggled to be free, though she had no body. The void held her fast, indifferent to her terror--or feeding on it--until she trembled on the brink of madness?
