#1 - A Court This Cruel and Lovely

Just hours after humans are born, the gods take what little power we have. In return, they protect our borders from the vicious, merciless fae.

The humans who manage to keep their power are known as the corrupt.
And they are burned to death.

When my forbidden power is discovered, I’m forced to flee my tiny village and the life I adore.

To survive, I make a desperate bargain with the mercenary, a dark yet handsome one.

But the ruthless mercenary is hiding secrets of his own. Secrets that threaten the safety of everyone I love. Secrets that could tear this kingdom—and perhaps even this world—apart.

#2 - A Kingdom This Cursed and Empty
After fleeing from everything I knew and loved, and hiding in plain sight in a deceitful court, I am now faced with Lorian’s truth.

He was no mercenary . . .

He is known as the Bloodthirsty Prince.

His reign of terror has left a trail of blood across this continent. A trail that intertwines with my own past.

But, to save my brother’s life, I agreed to another bargain with the fae prince.

There are no lines I won’t cross to protect the people I love. I’ll bury my shattered heart and cooperate with the fae to prepare for the coming war.
#3 - A Crown This Cold and Heavy
#3 - A Crown This Cold and Heavy
I find myself in a place surrounded by enemies, closer to death than ever before, and far away from the only person I want.

Lorian . . .

Amidst a betrayal we couldn't have anticipated, I'll do whatever it takes to find my way back to him – before his fury lays waste to this continent.

Alliances are being forged and broken and our enemies are unifying.

And Regner is closing in . . .

But he hasn’t yet realised that I'll stop at nothing to free my people.

And he's the one who should be afraid of me.

#4 - A Queen This Fierce and Deadly

The price of love is loss.

We all pay it eventually. . .

Some moments are too painful to be endured, and some moments will break you if you let them.

And yet I can’t afford to let anything break me. Because we have one chance to win this war. One chance to create a better life for everyone across the four kingdoms.

Even as our enemies ally with each other, and our own allies are forced to betray their kingdoms, their people . . . and themselves.

And even as Regner plans something so cruel, so wholly evil, he’s poised to douse the last remaining spark of hope in this world.

Unless we kill him first.
