An Oathbreaker’s Vow
by J. Ellen Ross
Sixteen-year-old Leisha Tahaerin takes her throne after the murder of her weak-willed father. Friendless and surrounded by enemies, her position is precarious. While her nobles want her married off quickly or killed quietly, the stubborn, newly-crowned queen has no intention of playing nice.
But if Leisha wants to survive Tahaerin politics, she’s going to need allies.
Zaraki grew up learning to spy and kill. But the life he’s always known is shattered when he’s betrayed and marked for death. Hunted by those he once served, Zaraki flees across the continent to the court of Tahaerin. With nothing but a quick wit and the sword on his hip, he offers the new queen his service.
To save herself and her kingdom, Leisha will trust her life to a foreign spy. To protect her, Zaraki will break every oath he’s ever made.
