Location: Ancient China
Date: T'ang Dynasty
During the most flourishing era in Ancient China, all seemed to be well for the people. The kingdom was governed by a wise Emperor, the enemies were kept far from the borders, trade increased, as did the arts and other things...
One may just wonder how everything seemed to go wrong for Zhao Jiayi and her cousin Tai Huazhi.
Jiayi is the middle daughter of seven to a wealthy merchant of China. Gifted with a silver tongue and vast knowledge, she helps run the house and tries to convince her father to let her elder sister marry.
That wish is fulfilled with the arrival of the Emperor's nephew, Li Xiao.
Yet when things do not go as she planned, she finds herself thrown into the world of the Royal and Imperial family, fighting not to drown in the midst of all the secrets, lies, and deceit.
Huazhi is an outcast, and she chooses to stay that way. After being orphaned at a young age and taken in by her uncle, she becomes accustomed to not being wanted....that is,
Until another outcast is thrown into her world.
Now she must fight to stay alive no matter what the consequences, even at the risk of losing the ones she truly cares for.
Both Jiayi and Huazhi become part of a war greater than themselves; a war of survival, loyalty, love, and family. Yet even a pebble thrown in the water can make a great ripple of impact.
