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.
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.
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.
