Coulta was born with a curse, one that forces him to obey the commands of those who hold authority over him. For many years he has been the unwilling assassin of the cruel and rebellious Lord Varin. His only hope has been a letter left for him by his father, assuring him that he will one day find someone who will free him. Little does he know that person is the Crown Prince of Phelin and that in order to gain this promised freedom he must first endure war and magic - and risk his life to save the man he loves.
