Lilah is a seeker in training. All her life she has dreamt of being a part of the sacred order of warriors with only one goal: seek out magic—evil—and destroy it.
Her dream is on the verge of becoming a reality. A seeker is retiring, and the next of the order is to be chosen.
Meanwhile, a murder has been committed in the city, a murder that could have only been done with magic.
Lilah and the other recruits are tasked with finding the perpetrator, and the test of who is to become the next seeker turns deadlier than she could have ever imagined.
The Seeker and the Sword is a prequel novella set in the world of the Hollow Fate series, several years before the first book, A Dark Inheritance, begins.
