“She was an inconvenient accident of birth, carrying within her a portion of the rightful king’s soul.”
Queen Nyla should never have been born even if she was destined for a throne. Believed to carry a piece of her twin brother’s soul, many think it should be returned to him in the only way possible—Nyla’s death. Now influential Lord Lucian seeks to destroy Nyla in his ultimate quest of conquering the Guardian Grotto. Not only does the Grotto harbor the fugitives Lucian seeks but it is the hiding place of the most powerful of objects, the Guardian Rock.
Unbeknown to Nyla she has a protector by her side. Yet if her lady-in-waiting’s unusual knife skills should come to light, the very secrets that protect the queen could become a weapon in her enemies’ hands.
