Forgiveness or revenge? Which would you choose?
Maegwin is a condemned woman.
Once a revered priestess of Sho-La, she is sentenced to hang for a crime she refuses to repent. So when a mysterious figure intervenes to snatch her from the jaws of death, she wonders if he might just hold the key to her salvation—and her ambition. Guided by the dark whispers of her goddess, she agrees to join him in a perilous quest for justice. Or is it revenge?
Rovann wants nothing to do with a traitor.
Yet, as King's Mage, he doesn't have much choice. Tasked by his king with quelling a rebellion that threatens to plunge the kingdom of Amaury into chaos, he needs information— information only the volatile priestess can give him. Maegwin is not the ally he would choose. Unpredictable, cynical, and with more than a dose of darkness in her heart, he's not sure he can trust her.
But they are both going to have to do just that if they are to unravel the sinister conspiracy lurking at the kingdom's heart—and emerge from the shadows alive.
Join Maegwin and Rovann as they embark on a dangerous mission where the stakes couldn't be higher. If they fail, everyone loses. And if they win? Well, that could be even worse.
