He’s loved her since he first laid eyes on her, but her heart belongs to a ghost.
Alistair wasn't meant to make the sacrifice to end the Blight. It was Solana's duty, her purpose. But he did, and he died. For 10 years she wondered Thedas with no will to live and no duty to die by. Then the sky split open.
The Inquisition is the only power trying to set things right. Solana is surprised to discover her dear friend Leliana is its spymaster, but not as surprised as she is to discover her old Circle crush, Cullen, is leading its forces.
The last time she saw him, he begged her to slaughter a tower full of mages.
Cullen has been suffering his PTSD and lyrium withdrawal in silence, seeking nothing but a chance to atone. Then *she* arrives. Can she ever forgive him for what he became?

While Cullen plans an assault on Corypheus, Solana struggles to find purpose beyond the label “Hero of Ferelden”. As a Circle Mage, she has no idea how to be a wife, let alone a mother.
But when her child is threatened, she discovers there's nothing she's unwilling to do to protect her new family. Even if it means crossing lines she'd never have imagined crossing.
Meanwhile Hawke is forced to confront his feelings for Anders. Is there any hope for them after Kirkwall?

Ferelden’s mages are flocking to Skyhold as the Chantry debates the future of the Circles, but they are more vulnerable than they realise. Someone has stolen their phylacteries. And the key suspect has feathered pauldrons, a penchant for cats, and an incredibly powerful spirit on board.
It’s up to Cullen to find Anders and return the phylacteries before anyone important knows they’re gone. After the harrowing year he’s had, he may not be up to the task. Heartbroken and exhausted, he’s fallen into old habits his wife can know nothing of.
Meanwhile Solana grapples with her past deeds, Hawke struggles to get over the man he gave up everything for, Cassandra is forced to choose between love and duty, and Celeste has to confront the past in order to embrace her future.
Is 'happily ever after' possible for people who have seen as much as they have?
