A secret curse. An assassination attempt. A life and death mission.
With the threat of war looming over the five kingdoms of Daleskaro, Princess Cyrena battles against a dark magic that invades her mind and restrains her powers. A delicate peace hinges on a rescue mission to a kingdom whose prince is in mortal danger; a kingdom where merely having magic is punishable by death. For Cyrena, the way is clear. She must infiltrate Jedrinyth in disguise, thwart the unknown assassin, and save her childhood sweetheart, Prince Eldrick.
Danger increases at every turn as Cyrena navigates the political intrigue of a foreign court. Innocents are being killed in the name of conquering magic, with Eldrick leading the charge. As she endeavors to protect him, old feelings are rekindled—despite the differences in their ideals—but soon she begins to wonder if he cares for her, or her façade.
As the assassin continues to elude her, she fears her mission will fail. War is unavoidable if Eldrick dies, but inevitable if Cyrena intervenes through the only means possible—magic. The mission must come first, but is she willing to risk her true self for peace?
