In the world of Komos, everything is neatly divided into two categories: Light and Dark. For centuries, Light mages and Dark mages have existed separately, each side holding on to a long and bloody history of hatred for the other.
Nerissa Smith and her brother, Poseidon, are Grey mages—a perfect mix of Light and Dark. As revolution stirs in the kingdom of Aether, they are forced out of hiding and wind up under the protection of a dedicated group of political reformists. But it is not only the social order that is falling out of balance; suddenly, it is up to Nerissa and Poseidon to find a way to restore balance to the entity Chaos, even as they prepare for the war they were born to fight.
