When Samantha is summoned to the royal court of Nova for a secret mission, it's her chance to put her training to the test: Princess Evelyn has taken an illegal love potion with disastrous effects, and Samantha, like her ancestors before her, is great at mixing potions. She may not be one of the naturally Talented (those who can heal or transform at the wave of their hands), but she is skilled nonetheless and determined to find an antidote and cure Princess Evelyn. The problem? Princess Evelyn took the love potion to make her best friend, Zain, fall for her, and it's Zain whom Samantha keeps encountering on her hunt for antidote ingredients. As forbidden sparks between them fly, Samantha is forced to wonder: Will curing Princess Evelyn doom her own chance at love?
