Adem is the Bearer of the Mark, a fact that remained secret all her childhood and should have for the rest of her life, just like the secret of her existence. She was raised on the words of her father that she was “his little secret", and what can you do if your father is the king of the kingdom and you the hidden-away princess. She lived for 16 dutiful years behind guarded doors.
As the seasons start to change, Daritee, her sole friend, takes Adem away from the massacre of her family and destruction of her castle. For the first time she can stretch her wings and see her kingdom, but the burning homes and screams from below quickened Daritee and her’s flight away from her castle, her home.
