CURRENTLY WRITING PART 2: Hawise of house Avante was everything one could hope for from a queen: benevolent, clever, and just. The throne was never supposed to be hers, but became her burden to carry due to the crimes of house Tahanna and their heir, Rosalyn. Despite Hawise's own doubts, she is deemed ready to take the trial of the dragon's flame, and ascend the throne of Ylmea. But then the unthinkable happens: the trial rejects her, denying her worthiness to become queen. With dragons attacking the capitol for the first time in centuries, Hawise is blamed for their return. Exiled, disgraced, and left with nothing but the clothes on her back, Hawise has many questions. Her only hope to return to the city and rescue her people, is to travel far into hostile lands and risk her life to find the answers.
