When light is consumed, and death races to swallow what remains, even the most youthful love may stand only to fall.
When West finds himself about to be sold at an Auction, his Guardian, Shield, does all he can to protect him, but his power is limited. West sinks deep into a depression as the day of his sale comes closer.
Jeana, a young girl with raven hair, shares the same doom. In an act of desperation they flee from the Auction only to find themselves stranded on an ancient isle where a new darkness threatens to overtake them.
A predator is loosed on the isle and West and Jeana are thrown into a fight to save each other's lives. But in a world where darkness has swallowed all but the last bit of light, even love may not be enough to get keep them alive.
