It begins in flickering shadow beneath a canopy of trees, when the life of a king is saved. A chance encounter with a mysterious defender not only spares his life but sets in motion a chain of events that will forever alter a kingdom. Forever alter a world. All beginning with her.
Kyana Castway is the strangest of women with a stranger past and savage streak. Consumed by loss and grief, Kyana has hidden for years from a world she hates. A world of bloodshed, wars, and conflicting histories. A world where dragons brought magic and because of this, were slaughtered. Where practicing devotion to those long-dead beasts (known across the realms as being a Faithful) is punishable by banishment or even death. A world that inevitably found her.
Kyana keeps many secrets from those who now owe her their lives, but could an unexpected affection force her secrets into the light?
