A novel by

 
 
The Kingdom of Alden is under attack from neighboring Oridia and every citizen must rise to defend it, including Lady Alix Black. Although Alix’s family is known for being bold, the noblewoman-turned-scout surprises everyone when she saves King Erik’s life during a brutal battle. But as Erik fights to protect Alden, his brother plots to steal it, with the help of Alden’s greatest enemy, the Priest.

An Oridian lord and powerful witch, the Priest keeps Oridia’s soldiers equipped with bloodforged weapons, and is rumoured to command darker magicks besides. It is said the Oridian army never loses a battle when the Priest rides with them, and now he’s been spied on the battlefield itself, just as Alix is thrust to the front lines.

Newly promoted to Captain and personal bodyguard to the king, Alix finds herself dangerously unprepared for the task at hand. To make matters worse, she’s been separated from her comrades, including Liam, her most trusted confidant – and maybe something more. Torn between her duty and her heart, Alix must rely on her instincts as she grapples with political intrigue, fierce battles, and unspeakable evil in order to protect her king and save her country.
