As a child, have you ever been told to behave or else you'd be sold to the gypsies?
Elophia was adopted by a Romani caravan for the price of five pieces of gold and a bushel of apple, raised to perform in exchange for food and lodging. The reason for her adoption is a dark one: If she could gaze into another person's reflection, even for an instant, she is granted a vision of their death. Unable to control this power, she tries to hide it the best she can, always in fear of the next accident.
Renowned as a skilled fortune teller even without her gift, Elophia and her family fetch a high price wherever they perform. With the French king's marriage only weeks away, they eagerly take to the road to earn a place in the day's entertainment. Her abilities might be just the thing Elophia and her family need to secure their spot, but something given means something taken, and the oracle herself may be called to pay the price.
Faced with scrying for the king himself, Elophia must make a choice between family, duty, and her own life. Can a woman who foresees death ever have a chance at life?
