A personal invitation from Divine Justinia and a sealed Circle file? Evelyn Trevelyan was as much an enigma as the glowing mark on her hand to Leliana. Cassandra believed her family influenced her special position at the Conclave, much like they garnered respect and fear in the Chantry and the Templar Order. The noble family’s exclusive lyrium shipping rights across the Waking Sea awed Josephine. Cullen figured their new Herald of Andraste was a just fragile, snobby Circle mage. Her cooperation was vital if the Inquisition wished to seal the Breach.
Who they got was Enchanter Evie Trevelyan, an overly sarcastic, easily angered fire mage who mistrusts the advisors as much as herself. Their new ‘Herald of Andraste’ swayed between an inspirational icon and a weeping, broken woman. As the mage and the Inquisition discover their new roles in chaotic Thedas, everyone’s pasts creep into the picture. More is there than meets the eye. Can the Inquisition protect their Herald from assassins, conflicting mages and templars, and each other? The Inquisition and its leaders must be her safe haven.

After losing Haven and fleeing into the Frostback Mountains, the Inquisition discovers it needs a new home and direction, establishing itself at Skyhold. The advisors determine they need a permanent leader to guide the faithful against Corypheus, and Evie is asked to be Inquisitor. The mage accepts, shedding her past chains and declaring a new chapter in her life to bring forth change.
However, Evie quickly discovers she has traded one pair of shackles for another, overwhelmed by both her divine role as the Herald of Andraste and the emotional and physical demands of being the Inquisitor. Pressures from the Trevelyans, Orlesians, and Templars began burying the fire mage. Her Inner Circle invades her personal life. Her only saving grace is Cullen, who makes it his duty to be her protector, despite his own past creeping throughout Skyhold. The commander recognizes quickly the woman he has grown to care about is falling through very thin ice. Evie must choose between what is expected of her titles and what brings her happiness.

Taking extra precautions, Cullen and Evie protect their budding romance from the Inner Circle and their adversaries. Almost as soon as their relationship begins, the couple must separate as Evie and her comrades travel to the Western Approach. She finds herself surrounded by both Corypheus’ henchmen and her own personal enemies, specifically those who supported her brothers’ killer. The Inquisitor's growing emotions for Cullen force her to recognize the associations with her abused body and her guarded heart. Alone, the Inquisitor suffers continuous setbacks as she battles both her internal and external demons.
At Skyhold, the Inquisition’s advisors run the organization alone. Emotions run high throughout the fortress with each new troubling situation. With Evie hundreds of leagues away, Cullen slowly succumbs to his worsening withdraw symptoms. The consequences of his past decisions and actions plague him mercilessly.
The Inquisition may fight to save the Grey Wardens, but it may fall to their mutual enemy: Fear.
