The sequel to the The Bronze Mage finds Princess Tabitha in her least favorite of the three kingdoms and things are generally going as she’d expected: Her allies are unreliable; her enemies are unscrupulous; her bridegroom is unreadable. But although Tabitha knew life in the capital of Xentia would be difficult, she’d never expected it to be dangerous. Rumors are flying that someone is targeting Tabitha. Is it one of her husband’s enemies? Or is someone trying to start a war between Tabitha’s new home and her father’s kingdom?
