Read full description of the books:
In Rilka's village, it isn't safe to go out after dark. That's when the beguilers drift through the streets, as bright and visible as fireflies. Everyone knows their power-they hypnotize their victims and, in the end, lead them to their deaths. When Rilka declares her Great Intention to capture a beguiler, her family and friends mourn her. Still, a determined Rilka sets out on her lonely, danger-filled journey, where she will struggle to keep her strength and her sanity. What she learns there will change her life-and the life of her village-forever. . . .
