Faramund, Guardian of Celeibra's prince Alcaeus, only cares about two things: keeping his prince safe and following the rules. With Alcaeus' rule in jeopardy, a bumbling mage failing at spying seems the least of his problems -- at least until the mage accidentally gets Faramund caught in his escape attempt gone wrong. With no way back other than a truce with the offending mage Decebal, following the rules just got a lot harder. Ex-princess Channary meanwhile wants her kingdom back from the Celeibran prince and is willing to do anything to reclaim it. Just one problem: an impostor is doing the exact same thing -- and a way better job of it.
