Overview

The nine kingdoms of Celadmore are at war. The people suffer under tyrants that strive to gain land and power in the struggle for superiority.

Queen Kasnata is trapped in a loveless, political marriage to King Mercia Nosfa VI. Her children are held hostage by her husband to force her armies to march on his whim.

The people of Grashindorph, capital city of Nosfa, are oppressed by their king and beneath the surface of the city a revolution stirs.

As war threatens to tear Celadmore to pieces, Kasnata struggles to bring peace back to the realm. She fights against venality to bring hope to all those that are oppressed, as well as those that have been caught in the savagery of warring kings.

Can the legendary queen, Empress of the Order find the strength to fight knowing the fate of her people rests on her shoulders?

"You are an assassin, spy and infiltrator." Amalia said with a raised eyebrow.

"Then perhaps we should be more mindful of General Bird than we have been."
