For the last two hundred years, Castlier has been deciding the order of succession through popular vote. In this kingdom, being the first born doesn't guarantee you a position on the throne. No, you may lose it to your youngest sibling the moment the current ruler dies. You have to win the hearts of your people in order to win the throne. But what happens when sibling rivalry becomes corrupted? When a healthy competition for the throne, turns into a deadly battle for survival? The older siblings are no longer happy with the system; they want what should be theirs by birth right. And they will get it by any means possible.
Vera Kaan, princess of the kingdom of Castlier, finds herself trapped in the middle of a situation she never wanted any part of. She never asked to be in line to become queen. She never asked to be born. Since the day it was discovered her mother was pregnant with her, there had been a bounty on her head. She has been fighting for her life since she was merely a fetus. But all she longs for is freedom, a world in which she no longer has to fear her brother, a world in which she can finally trust someone. But, giving up her chance at the throne could have disastrous consequences for her kingdom. If Tyson were to become king, the whole kingdom will be doomed. Vera will have to make the choice to either save herself, or save her kingdom.
