Adria is the youngest child of Lord Carlisle Vaelin of Verideon, the brother to the King, King Bronn Vaelin.
Her Uncle Bronn failed to return from his voyage overseas. With no ship nor confirmation of the kings well-being, the realm fears the worst for their king.
Adria's father, Lord Carlisle Valein, was next in line for the throne as no heir had been born to the throne. Should he fail to accept, the title falls to Lady Mara Vaelin, Adria's aunt.
Oblivious to the knowledge of her Uncle's disappearance, life for Adria and her own remains as it always has. But, that changes abruptly with the passing of Autumn.
Now, the lives of Lord Carlisle Vaelin's children have been altered indefinitely. The Lords and Lady are forced to grow and adapt to their new life on the road. No longer do they adorn precious jewels and marvelous clothing, no longer are they waited upon nor watched over, now, they are alone.
When the rains come and the deep snow falls, when thunder booms and lightning strikes, when nothing burns through the long dark nights and dreary days, an inferno fuelled by desire and hatred burns brightly within them all.
Adria, her brothers and the friends they make along their journey feel a debt is owed, and no gold nor titles will cover the cost. This debt must be paid in blood.
For revenge is sweet, but it is best when it ends in blood.
*This book will contain some violent scenes, a fair amount of blood and the occasional use of profanities*
