More than two decades have gone by since Imperial Princess Jenna, broken in heart and body, fled her brutal marriage—and the land of her birth. She’s since become Ivariel: warrior, priestess of Danu, trainer of elephants, wife and mother. Wiser, stronger, happier, Ivariel has been content to live in her new country, to rest her battered self, and to recover from the trauma of what happened to her when she was barely more than a girl.

But magic has returned to the world—abruptly and with frightening force—and Ivariel takes that profound change as a sign that it’s time to keep a promise she made to the sisters she left behind. Ivariel must leave the safety she’s found and return to face the horrors she fled.

As Ivariel emerges from hiding, she discovers that her vicious brother is now Emperor of Dasnaria, and her much-hated mother, the Dowager Empress Hulda, is aiding him in his reign of terror. Worse, it seems that Hulda’s resurrection of the tainted god Deyrr came about as a direct result of Jenna’s flight long ago.

It’s up to Ivariel—and the girl she stopped being long ago—to defeat the people who cruelly betrayed her, and to finally liberate her sisters. Determined to cleanse her homeland of the evil that nearly destroyed her, Ivariel at last returns to face the past.

But this time, she’ll do it on her own terms.





"I can’t go into much detail without giving spoilers to the series. But I highly recommend this romantic fantasy series. Pretty much every story has a new couple coming together. The worldbuilding is phenomenal. And I love the wide array of characters. So many different personalities that work well together. I’ve loved every book in this collection of series.

"This author's edge of the seat stories are always guaranteed to be exceptional reads and this slightly shorter book is no different. Slotting effortlessly into the Twelve Kingdom world that the author has created we yet again are transported to a world chock full of danger and intrigue with vibrant characters that cry out to have their stories told." - Marta Cox on Goodreads
