Once upon a time, a nation’s fate depended on an informant.
Once upon a time, a woman knew the law and a man knew war.
Once upon a time, they all lived under a good Monarch’s leadership.
Until he was assassinated.
Galantier’s politics can be vicious, corrupt, petty and unfair, but not deadly. They’ve got a war they can’t win and dare not lose on their border. Everything depends on a practical, cooperative government, including a smooth succession.
Vohan made that easy. For twenty-five years, he’s been a steady, reasonable monarch and leader. He raised his daughter, Cazerien, to serve Galanteran justice. His nephew, Laarens, leads in the Galanteran army. They will follow him.
Now Vohan is dead, and Galanteran politics have turned bloody. Nothing will ever be the same.
Cazerien believes in the law — not just as her profession, but as a faith and the wisdom that allows her people to thrive. She knows Galantier’s game, and she plays it well. Laarens believes in Cazerien and the arts of war.
Their adversary doesn’t follow their rules.
And someone knows what their adversary must keep secret.
