Ian’s life changes forever when he travels to Ireland, to his grandfather’s side, and to a promise he can’t possibly keep.

She mourns the death of her beloved husband and has lost sight of everything she holds dear. When Ian enlists her to solve the mystery held by the chalice, she fights for the life she once wanted to end, for the faith she thought she had lost forever, and for the love she can’t possibly have.
Lorcan Duihbur, powerful, shrewd, elusive, deadly, holds office as Ireland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.
