The countries of Arkadia and Tauris have always been on the constant brink of war, the hatred a result from a single act of kindness. The kingdom of Lystra stands between the two, keeping the peace. It's almost always a losing battle.
Princess Nova of Lystra has always been taught to keep the peace, no matter the cost. But when secrets about her family's past surface, she's left wondering if it's peace or secrets that she's been trained to keep.
Ripped out of her idealistic little world by betrayal, lies, and cruelty- she's learning the true price of peace.

"I will announce your engagement to my son at a ball tomorrow," he said matter-of-factly.
"Like hell, you will" she spat, struggling to control her violent temper.
