Harric is an outcast rogue who must break a curse on his fate or die on his nineteenth birthday. To survive, he’ll need help, but on the kingdom’s lawless frontier his only allies are other outcasts.
One of these is Caris, a mysterious, horse-whispering runaway, intent upon becoming one of the Queen’s first female knights. The other is Sir Willard—ex-immortal, ex-champion, now addicted to pain-killing herbs and banished from court.
With their help, Harric might keep his curse at bay. But for how long?
And both bring perils of their own: Caris flees a troubled past; and Willard is hunted by order of insane immortal knights who vow to crush his quest for the Queen.
Together, they face fanatical armies, murderous sorcerers, and powerful supernatural foes.
Alone, Harric faces the temptation of a forbidden magic that could break his curse, but cost him the only woman he’s ever loved.
