Once upon a time, Princess Mavis chose love over a political marriage. Her father disowned her, stripping away any chance she or an heir would inherit Reshner’s throne. But her father is dead, and so are her little brother and his elder son.
Thus far, Mavis’s nephew, Terosh, has turned out to be an adequate king, but Reshner cannot afford to be divided. The Galactic Alliance of Populated Planets has been hoping to annex the Edge Planet for years.
Mavis bears no particular ill-will toward the young queen or Terosh. However, if she cannot install a powerful ruler quickly and secure strong allies, her homeworld will be enslaved.
The only way to remove the current rulers is to kill them.
*This book can be read alone, but it is much better if read after Reshner’s Royal Ranger and before Reshner’s Royal Guard.
For Terosh, the Kireshana—or “renewing fire journey”—offers a chance to prove himself as a man, not just the spare prince. However, first, he must escape his father’s smothering presence.
For Reia, a Ranger sworn to protect royals, the task of keeping the prince safe turns complicated when the fool runs away from his private guards. After an explosive meeting, the prince and the Ranger decide to travel together. Forces of nature and wild animals are expected dangers, but several predators come with political agendas.
When Terosh’s attraction for his Ranger guardian becomes apparent, Reia becomes a pawn in a wider game.
Even access to the fabled god-machines might fail to save them from having to answer a single question: what is one life measured against the fate of a planet?
Keio’s dream of seeing the Golden City turns into a nightmare. He and his friend, Clara, get swept up by Fire Fairies along with the other youths in their village. They’re quickly sold to the local lord.
The man seeks something very special that only certain young people possess, and he’s willing to threaten anyone to get it. But his daughter has other plans.
Like it or not, Keio and Clara land in the middle of a brewing war. They’re going to have to pick a side soon, and if they choose wrong, their lives aren’t the only ones forfeit.
