Duel of Fire
by Jordan Rivet
Dara Ruminor is a serious young duelist in the mountaintop kingdom of Vertigon, a land of dramatic cliffs and misty peaks where mysterious Fire magic runs through the stones like blood. The secluded kingdom has been peaceful for 100 years. Swords are used for sport, and athletes live like kings as long as the crowds love them.
18-year-old Dara is working harder than anyone to win dueling glory when her coach asks her to train with Prince Siv. He’s an infuriating—if handsome—young man who refuses to take the sport as seriously as she does. But the prince’s life is in danger, and Vertigon isn’t as peaceful as they thought.
As threats emerge from the shadows, Dara will have to raise her sword to protect Siv—if he doesn’t irritate her so much that she decides to run him through herself.
