Summary
Leira is starting her initiation as a priestess when her world is turned upside down. A violent earthquake leaves her home in pieces. And the goddess hasn't finished with the island yet. With her family, Leira flees across the sea to Crete, expecting sanctuary. But a volcanic eruption and tsunami throw the entire world into darkness. In the resulting chaos, Leira finds her noble-born privilege reduced to nothing; alone with her injured mother and elderly nurse, Leira's only hope of survival is her own resourcefulness
