Mirella, the once slave, now lives a posh existence through a stolen life. Wed to the God-King Kulav, their passionate love transcends all else, yet the dark Warlord is preparing for battle once more.
When someone dear to them both dies, the blood spilled will paint the mountains red. But the secret coven of witches can sense the larger storm brewing, the war beyond the battle.
The price will be high, and the love between the Warlord and his wife might save the people of Ariste, or condemn them to their doom.
