He did not move from the spot where he stood.
He did not hear Jace calling out to him.
He did not notice the key slip from his fingers, making a little clang on the cobblestone floor.
The only thing that crossed his mind were the words that he whispered out loud.
Rayna Imperium was about to celebrate her tenth birthday, and she couldn't have been more excited. There was to be a big celebration in her honor, everyone from around the kingdom was to be there, near and far, including her best friend Theo Serpentine. What was most important to her though was that she would finally come into her powers as a witch, or Pytho as some called them.
But on the eve of her birthday, tragedy struck when the former King of Somnium, Malum Serpentine, takes out the King of Terra. Through a course of events, Queen Ella, was taken prisoner when accused of the murder. Her Uncle Kalevi, Captain of the royal guard, the Bellator's, must hide Rayna away, keeping her identity a secret when the kingdom thinks the princess died along with the king.
With the help of Rayna's Aunt Catherina, her cousin Cyrus and her friend Jewel, she prepares to become a witch, a leader, and as others join them, a fighter. Each step of the way, Rayna learns about who she is and finds out secrets that happened long before her. Along the way, she runs into old friends and meets some new as well as enemies that she cannot see. As her eighteenth birthday draws near, she waits for when she can take back the throne, but as she has come to learn first-hand, nothing ever goes as planned.
