Half human royalty, Sara, contests with her duties as the princess of two worlds and her growing love for a demigod. She treasures Arie for who he is inside, but another lusts for his power and excellence. Mei comes in the night with thick plans and an army behind her. She strikes Sara down and kills her family, leaving her to her own convictions. A princess then becomes a queen, refusing to fail the merfolk and men that need her.
Caught between fearful gods of old and the modern vessels of war, Arie must ride the line between love and hate as his gifts of prophecy guide him through the thickest. Lord Arie not only fights for his own city, he battles for the freedom of all: earthly, otherworldly, and fey souls alike.
Yet, when Mei’s plans of total domination unfold into an army of millions, both devotion and claws are tested...in Shu’alu...the spirit realm of the dead.
