Eva expects to have a long, happy life with her husband, Prince Micah, and their soon to be born child. However, a visit to his sick father, the king, lands Eva in turmoil. The queen, now self-appointed ruler in the king’s absence, informs her that her father is on his way to Zandell.
Her husband, Prince Micah, must go on a quest to save his father and he leaves Eva in the hands of the king’s guards. But Eva discovers the queen lied. Her father has given her three months to return home. The Northern Kingdom of Rael will not acknowledge the queen’s rule. If she doesn’t return, the king of Rael will regard that as a sign of war.
