Logan Gyre has a history to keep up. As the new king of Cenaria, he has a much larger plate of responsibility than many. The country is under siege, and he must find a way to help. Of course, doing so will never be easy. With a ransacked, desperate army and morale lower than he's ever seen it, his chances seem slim as far as success goes.
Of course, there is a gamble he can take. It's a desperate one, but one that may turn this war around. The plan is simple, and at the same time, not: Assassinate a goddess. Stuck in the middle of this is Kylar Stern, the unwitting hero who has to do the deed, at great personal risk. Will he succeed?
His success (or failure) has the entire kingdom riding on it, and throughout, the question of who will win--evil or good--rings true with every heartbeat. Will the kingdom fall, or is it possible to still save it?
