Two sisters who sing the songs of dragons are torn between love and duty when plague strikes their city. They are asked to create a forbidden healing mirror which, if made correctly, will provide the cure to any illness. If tainted, however, the piece becomes an all-devouring monster. How can they possibly decide, when every possible choice puts those they love risk?
Glass singers use the power of their voices to create beautiful objects. Octavia, once declared the greatest voice in three generations, has lost her talent. A powerful queen watches from afar as Octavia struggles to come to terms with her loss. The queen and her ancient living mirror understand better than anyone the cause of Octavia’s trouble. They also know the antidote for it. But Queen Anula wants to use Octavia, not save her.
