A Kingdom Made Of Glass (#Wattys2016)
They say those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, but what if everything around you were to be made of glass... Say your whole kingdom? What would you do then?
Oceania, a stunning island country, is in a fragile state. Oceania in fact has had a string of bad luck with it's High Kings. High King Arin Servaria, was executed by the High Council, for crimes against the country. High King Anthony Servaria, Arin's older brother continued this unfortunate string of bad luck, by dying in a fire with his wife and infant son.
Except, Anthony's son, Alexei, didn't die. In fact he's taken over for his father, as High King. The only catch? Alexei can't let the country know he's the High King, out of fear of losing his teenage years to work. So in order to keep his identity a secret he wears a cloak, and the High Council hates him for this.
Alexei and the other three High Kings are beginning to realize that the glass that holds this country, and the rest of the Triune, is becoming thinner all the time.
