Shadow of Death
by Diane E. Samson
A homeless prince, a grueling mission, an unlikely hope.
When unspeakable tragedy strikes Prince Jack’s family, he’s left with one desire: vengeance. Now serving a foreign king, Jack perfects his talent with the sword. He’s sent to the desert for spy and assassin training, dreaming of the day he’ll use these skills to drive a dagger into Ingvar’s heart.
Jack plunges into his training and finds a new family of sorts. But as the desert Lord Anwar readies for battle, allegiances shatter, blood runs in the streets, and the shadow of death looms near. During a last effort to complete his seemingly impossible mission, Jack chances upon a slave girl with a Northern accent and eyes so familiar that he makes a hasty vow.
He always thought he’d defeat his nightmares by becoming one. Could that nightmare fade into a new dream? And could that strange slave girl be at the heart of it all?
