The Elders said it would never work. A hybrid slave and an Egyptian King -- their love would be like fire on fire, the kind of blaze that could only ever end in ashes. They were wrong, of course. Jezza knew it would end in Fury.
For Jezebel Virtua, the daughter of an Egyptian slave and a Greek soldier, the Exchange is only a distant nightmare. Every year, ten noble Greeks and ten noble Egyptians switch places, lives and courts, their lives linked through the magick of a soul tie. If one should die, their soul tied counterpart would die as well, so there could be no chance of foul play.
As a hybrid slave, the Exchange isn't even a possibility for her. That is until Prince Calix of Sparta passes her off as a high born lady, and she is forced to take the place of the fierce warrior Adom, half brother to King Ramses himself, their connection sealed in blood.
But between the threat of falling in love with Egypt's greatest tyrant and the horrible possibility of him finding out her true heritage, the soul tie looms ever greater. Because it is more than a simple guarantee of mutually assured destruction: it is ancient magick, the lifeline of the gods. She and Adom are now two halves of the same whole, destined to destroy each other in more ways than one.
As madness and war loom on the horizon, Jezza and Adom must find their way back to each other if they are ever to sever the soul tie. For if they do not, they face a fate worse than death--chaos, pure and complete.
