Deep Trace: Book Two of The Velieri Uprising

Tessa Van Wade

Under arrest and forced into The Cellar, a brutal prison for the most diabolical criminals, Remy Landolin knows that surrendering was a horrible mistake. Otherworldly spirits and constant mind games drain her sanity as her captors seek her execution. But she is not alone-Arek Rykor, the love of her life, is willing to risk everything to save her and help her fulfill her destiny.


Remy's story continues in Tessa Van Wade's second book of the Velieri Uprising series. Velieri and Ephemes become aware of each other and Navin continues to spin his web of lies all the way to the top. If they can't clear her name, they will never stop him or the rebellion he leads.


Is she the hope of a threatened civilization or an imposter? To figure that out, she must battle not only the Prophets and Powers, but fight a new breed of vicious assassins who can now trace deep into her mind. Will she learn to fight off their unrelenting assaults before it is too late?
