An epic fantasy standalone novel from the author of the stunning 'Wars Of Light And Shadows' series.
On the eve before the wedding that will keep her country at peace - enemies placated, trade alliances cemented - a beloved princess vanishes. Has she run away to escape the marriage, or has she been kidnapped for nefarious purposes?
The entire court erupts into political mayhem, and her distraught, aged father, the King, offers a sizable reward for her safe return.
This is the story of the quest to find her, and the story of each of the motley band of lords and adventurers who set out to scour the kingdom, for their various reasons, not least the reward money.
The princess has stumbled upon a sorcerous plot by enemies to bring winged demons over the mountains to destroy the kingdom; and only she can stop them.
