Arleth, a 17 year old slave in a backwater world, has no idea her life is about to be turned upside down. She is too busy trying to avoid the abuse from her owner Bella. But when the legendary king of Oherra comes to Tocarra, Arleth soon finds herself being chased by assassins, sought out by spies and smack dab in the middle of a decades long war. It soon becomes clear to Arleth that powerful forces are at play. Not everyone is who they seem, even those she wants to trust the most. Haunted by an ancient magic, Arleth must decide who she can trust and fast. The wrong choice would cost her the ultimate price – a fate worse than death – to end up as an enchantment. A hollowed out shell of a person; devoid of thought, consciousness and feeling. That’s if the birthright she’s completely unaware of doesn’t kill her first.
