An empire will rise and nations will fall.Raised to live and die by the sword, Queen Kasnata is Celadmore's last hope. She stands between her world, and the darkness that threatens to destroy all life. Can she withstand betrayal, conspiracy, war, and heartbreak to save her children, her people, and the realm?

Trapped in a political, loveless marriage, Queen Kasnata has the fate of the world resting on her shoulders. War between the nine kingdoms of Celadmore has raged since the death of Kasnata's parents. Her people, once proud warriors and peacekeepers, are now pawns in her husband's plans to conquer the world. King Mercia Nosfa is a tyrant who will not stop until he rules over every people, and now his eyes are fixed upon the lands of Delma.

The people of Delma were once allied with Kasnata's people, but now they must meet on the battlefield as enemies. Family members must now choose where their loyalties lie as grandfathers, fathers, daughter, mothers, and sons find themselves on opposite sides of this conflict. In this game of war, victory is not the only prize to fight for. Her children held hostage by her husband, Queen Kasnata has no choice but to fight in the fields of war, subterfuge, and diplomacy in order to save her children from the dark fates that her husband has in store for them.

With so many wrapped in the grip of power struggles and war, will peace ever return to Celadmore?

"We assume he has been alone with the queen for the last few days and yet no one seems too concerned about it. He seems to have the trust of a lot of very suspicious individuals. If I were an assassin or a spy, then that is how I would infiltrate our people." Misna observed with a shrug.
"You are an assassin, spy and infiltrator." Amalia said with a raised eyebrow.
"Then perhaps we should be more mindful of General Bird than we have been."
