Twenty years ago Carrington and Remko had to leave baby Elise captive in the Authority City. It was the worst day of their lives. They have never stopped thinking about her. Every year on her birthday, Carrington writes a letter to her baby, who is now a young woman.
Now the times are changing and the Seers along with Aaron are on the move. As they face incredible forces of evil, they are focused on just one goal which is to bring light to the darkness in the city.
This is the third book in the series- following “The Choosing” and “The Calling.” I have not read the other books in the series, and had a difficult time following the characters and truly understanding the plot. I often read books which are part of a series and am able to enjoy the book, as the author will give enough back ground to fill in the wholes. “The Returning” does not give enough of back ground information for me to understand and enjoy reading the book. So, I suggest you read the first 2 books in the series first.
