A dying kingdom. A fugitive queen. And the five knights who will fight to the death to defend them.
Lorelai D’Anjou’s life has never been easy. The sole survivor of a dark magic that destroyed her entire family, she has spent the last eight years caring for the ailing, impotent monarch who saved her life and claimed her for his own.
When the king is murdered by his selfish brother, Lorelai’s world is suddenly narrowed down to two choices: marry her husband’s killer, or die.
Now, she flees for her life, a fugitive in her own kingdom as she seeks allies to help her take back her stolen throne.
Thankfully, Lorelai is not without friends. The fierce, dashing knights of the Order of the Regent have always been loyal, and during her darkest hour, they come to her aid. Unfortunately, five knights are not enough to rally a kingdom, especially when assassins are nipping at Lorelai’s heels, and doubt is brewing in the hearts of Valliere’s great houses.
But Lorelai has never been one to give up, and she’s not about to start now. Especially when the alternative is not just death, but the end of the entire world as she knows it…
