Tess Aubreyson can't run far enough or fast enough to escape the prophetic dreams that haunt her — dreams that foretell nothing but death and grief. Tess refuses to accept that she may be destined for the same madness that destroyed her mother. That is until her disturbing dreams become the only means of saving Lord Ravencross, the man she loves, and her fellow students at Stranje House. Tess's old friend, the traitorous Lady Daneska, and the Ghost, the ruthless leader of the Iron Crown, have returned to England, intent on paving the way for Napoleon's invasion of England. Can the young ladies of Stranje House prevail once more? Or is England destined to fall into the hands of the power-mad dictator?
