The mind may forget, but the heart never will.
Only oblivion can stop her pain. Adelaide Jenner feels nothing…she is completely numb inside. Her fated love abandoned her and joined their enemy. On that day, her sister turned off all Adelaide’s emotions in order to save her from a heartbreak that could push her over the edge of sanity. But the great power she claims, wielded without compassion or love, can only lead to more pain.
Nate Pierce believes Adelaide used her extraordinary powers to deceive him all these years. So he destroyed a relationship he thought to be false and hungers for revenge. Now, Nate serves Maddox, unaware that his new leader is using him as a pawn in a bid to enslave or kill all Svatura.
The only hope of finally defeating Maddox is for Adelaide and her sisters to combine their growing powers against him. But the key to a Svatura’s power is the heart, and Adelaide is still missing hers.

black orchid: magnificence, love, beauty, refinement, reflection, great power and absolute authority
“Don’t do this, Nate,” Adelaide begged in a broken whisper. “Don’t go.” She held her hand out to him imploring him to listen. To stay. She touched nothing but air.
“Talia’s my te’sorthene,” Nate said as he took a step back. “I have to go.”
Shaking started deep inside her. “I’m your te’sorthene.”
“Are you?” A cruel sneer curled his lip.
Oh, God. Please no. Adelaide engaged her ability to see relationships. The glittering red line that had always represented their connection as te’sorthene was still in place. Barely. The bond was faded and slightly frayed, but still there.
Adelaide shuddered with relief, as she desperately held onto that one remaining shred of hope.
“Goodbye, Adelaide,” Nate said. And he was gone.
With no warning the barely-there thread of the te’sorthene line connecting herself and Nate snapped. At the same time, Adelaide a wall of terror and heartbreak smashed through her and splintered her soul. Her mouth opened in a silent scream, the sound welling up from deep within.
“No!” she screamed as she fell to her knees. The hard, cold rock against her knees didn’t even penetrate her anguished sobbing. “No! No! No!”
Adelaide wrapped her arms around her stomach, rocking back and forth, trying to hold herself together as her body wracked with trembles. But nothing eased her torment. Tortured, she turned to Lila and her sister actually flinched. A dreadful, uncontrollable something built inside her, deep in the hole Nate’s abandonment had created inside her heart.
Her breath came in uneven pants. “I can’t… I can’t… Please help me,” she begged.
