This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In a deadly game of politics and power, the destinies of two unlikely heroes will combine to reclaim a kingdom--or see it laid to waste.
Scrappy, ambitious, and stubborn, Sonya’s career as a mercenary has all been part of her plan to eventually command her own army. After running afoul of the most powerful woman in the kingdom, however, Sonya’s dreams are dashed as she finds herself humiliated, condemned, and left struggling to survive.
High above her lowly state, another young soul struggles against the interior workings of a corrupt and heartless system. Prince Kendryk is at the threshold of power. Not yet old enough to rule in his own right, Kendryk takes counsel from his regent, Duke Desmond, who has his own ideas of the kingdom’s future. When Kendryk uncovers Desmond’s plot to seize the throne, he must rely on the cunning help of an outsider in order to thwart the regent’s plans and rid the kingdom of his corrupt influence.
With their destinies intertwined, Sonya and Kendryk must overcome their own weaknesses for the sake of their lives and the fate of the kingdom. Large armies stand between them and victory--do they have what it takes to face the sword and triumph?
