Deviant and volatile, Saffron's daughter Omikia conspired to take over the inheritance; a dark living force controlled by blood...

After five years she has built her own special kind of following.  As she attempts to overthrow the magic of her ancestors she foregoes all commitments to the community and the old laws, and will go to any length to satisfy her obsession to have a daughter and re-define the family tradition.

Though the ink helped Saffron's mind to reach a safer place, her body has been left a shell and her blood may no longer be strong enough to protect Mina from her former friend Omikia's plans.
Meanwhile, caught between two women, Richard now seeks to exact revenge against those he feels crossed him.  However, for Mina, he has the cruellest of ideas.

Whoever controls the ink will write the ending - and it may not be a happy one.
