Alexander hears voices. Ever since he witnessed the brutal murder of his father, he hadn't quite been himself. He ran away from his castle, ignored his responsibilities as Prince in training, and quite possibly caused the downfall of his kingdom while he was at it.
Winter is a mystery. With flaming red hair and a snarky attitude, she does well to keep her past hidden. Under survalence 100% of the time by her twin brother, Celvic, she appeared safe enough, but Alexander had always wondered why she slept with a knife tucked under her pillow.
Archer is a mess. Abused since he was seven, he does best to protect his younger brother from the dangers of their home. When Alexander crashed into his life, literally, he found hope dwelling among his newfound family.
When more people start to turn up dead with no explanation, the band of four finds themselves in the unlikely situation of working as a team to steal a cure from a neighboring kingdom. The only flaw of their plan is that to execute it, they would have to cross the most dangerous landscape in the seven kingdoms: The Borderlands.
With corpses piling up and time running out as a psychopath tracked their every move, Alexander and his team must fight off monsters, battle the elements, and discover the true story behind their remaining kingdoms - a tale much darker than any of them had anticipated.
