Yesterday, Laida was Ardenis’s friend. Today, she’s the love of his life. And he can’t tell her.
Ardenis’s human emotions weren’t meant to awaken prematurely. The punishment is exile—denying him the beauty of a mortal life. He can’t get caught, and he can’t risk awakening Laida’s emotions. While she remains oblivious, he is in torment, struggling to find his new place in the world alone.
But love cannot exist without hate. Yesterday, the council could do no wrong. Today, Ardenis sees corruption among them—someone is plotting to prevent the first-ever fae from being born.
If Ardenis can’t uncover the source of the corruption while hiding his human emotions, the realm’s ability to provide souls to the mortal world will be destroyed. Everyone, including Laida, is at risk.
