Can there be peace without bloodshed?
Now in control of a court, Faye allows those without magic entry, offering protection and sanctuary from those who possess it.
But when her actions infuriate the old houses in Necromia, Faye is determined to rule without bloodshed and protect her people from the immortals who view the realm of Anaria as it has always been -the peasant lands.
As tensions build, the Court of Lace and Bone, led by a sadistic dark-blooded queen named Delilah, openly challenges Faye. Delilah targets her court, vowing to extinguish the source of Anaria's hope beneath the sole of her boot.
When Delilah's calculated strikes grow increasingly more vicious and personal, Faye will be forced to make a choice.
Become the thing she fears the most or lose her crown, her family, and herself.
