Adriella finally has her child in her arms, but not under the circumstances she hoped for. Caring for a newborn is difficult anyway, but with her wrists and ankles shackled, it's nearly impossible.
She's also been ripped from her husband and friends, and has no idea if they're still alive. Regardless, she must fight for herself and her child. Like her, the other women and children who are part of the same prison train will do anything to keep their families safe. Including sell out their fellow prisoners.
The High King still searches for the one destined to kill him. With everyone around her looking for the chosen, Adriella and her baby's chances of survival grow slimmer every day.
