Tally Chambers is content with her quiet, undemanding life. She works as a tarot reader during the day and plays open mics at night. Her simple utopia is shattered when the attractive Roland Stokes sits at her table. She is elated at his sudden interest in her, but soon discovers his true motivation.
Roland reveals that she is the Air Singer, one of four people in this generation who can control the elements. He is her paladin, sent to protect her from those who would cause her harm.
Tally is quickly thrown into a battle between two ancient societies. The Cadence want to protect her. The Spina want to kill her. All over a power she never asked for.
