A lush and gorgeously written debut packed with action,
intrigue, and a thrilling love triangle.
Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy
and serve in the king''s army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce
sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince''s guard.
But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of
night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can''t prevent him
from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince
Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and
deep into enemy territory.
The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince,
the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been
keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is
revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her
heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and
the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every
corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom
she''s sworn to protect?
