Chapter 1. Into the Woods
Would a man kidnap his own daughter-in-law? The castle is in ruins, its people bloodied and broken. I suspect my father was behind it. We are counting the dead and missing, and I’m in despair because I can’t find her anywhere. My beloved Princess Arien, eight months’ pregnant with our first child—and such a difficult child to come by, after years of trial and loss.
Aldo and Ezra have instructed me to meet them at their mother’s cottage, nearly a mile from the castle. They believe the princess was indeed kidnapped, and that her captors will demand ransom. What else would they want from the royal family?
Jacob tossed his favorite hand-held video game onto his bed, then grabbed his basketball and dashed down the stairs. As he entered the kitchen, he paused, glancing out the window to check on Amberly—still playing in the sandbox out back—then turned and bolted through the front door, eager to take advantage of the last rays of sunlight.
Matt, Jacob’s sixteen-year-old brother, was working in the garage. “Hey, I wanna shoot too,” he said as he popped his head out from under the truck.
“Fine, but I really need this practice. So challenge me.”
“Don’t I always?” Matt said with a laugh.
