From publicity material: Lark is a master in riding her beautiful flying horse, Black Seraph. Their chemistry is envied by many, especially by Duke William, head of the Duchy. His dark obsession with riding a winged horse proves alarming to Lark and Mistress Philippa. It seems he will stop at nothing to get a winged horse to accept him. In the process he is ignoring his traditional duties to protect the kingdom leaving the coast open to enemy Aesk raiders. Now, as the Duchy of Oc is ravaged by chaos, Lark and Philippa are caught in a desperate battle to save the Academy from the Duke, and the land from the Aesks.
