Captain Anika Vitae practically bleeds the colors of her country. A faithful servant to the emperor and a renowned hero of war, serving in the Ceirdan Army is all she knows. The thought of pushing the boundaries of allegiance has never once crossed her mind. But no one is ever as they seem, and nothing ever truly stays the same.
Prince Farid Runeys Arsamum was raised to keep the fae empire of Elyria in order. But when he is betrayed at his own father's hand, he begins to see things in a different light. Now, he is closer to the enemy than he ever thought he would be. His only wish is that one day hope will be restored in those he loves.
Outside the borders and across the seas, changes are occurring. Ruthless creatures and shadows lurk the battlegrounds of the endless feud between the fae and the humans. The god of the dead, Arawn, is rising and plotting. Along with this ancient deity comes a dark shadow that plagues the land.
With the two empires losing faith quickly, Anika and Runeys must prove that times haven't turned too dark for a flame to ignite.
