After blundering into the last stronghold of magic, Carin discovers that she is right to fear the wizard Verek. He is using her to seal the ruptures in the void, and she may be nothing more to him than an expendable weapon. What will he do with her--or to her--when his world is again secure? Or has he erred in believing that the last bridge has been broken? The quest may not, in fact, be over ... and Lord Verek may find himself not quite as willing to dispose of his fiery water-sylph, Carin, as he once believed himself to be. Book 2 of a series. The story begins with Waterspell Book 1: The Warlock and continues with Waterspell Book 3: The Wisewoman.
