In the original trilogy starring Paksenarrion Dorthansdotter,
headstrong daughter of a farmer on the north edge of the kingdom, Paks follows
her dream of becoming a hero out of legend by running away to join the army.
Military life and warfare aren’t anything like she imagined…yet she holds to both
her duty and her dreams. Sheepfarmer’s
Daughter, Divided Allegiance, and
Oath of Gold tell of her rise to
become the paladin who saves a kingdom. In this new trilogy, Paks’s former
comrades in Duke Phelan’s Company assume new roles and the story turns to follow
Thanks to Paks’s courage and sacrifice, the long-vanished
heir to the half-elven kingdom of Lyonya has been revealed as Kieri Phelan, a
formidable mercenary captain who earned a title—and enemies—in the neighboring
kingdom of Tsaia. Now, as Kieri ascends a throne he never sought, he must come
to terms with his own half-elven heritage while protecting his new kingdom from
his old enemies—and those he has not yet discovered.
Meanwhile, in Tsaia, Prince Mikeli prepares for his own
coronation. But when an assassination attempt nearly succeeds, Mikeli suddenly
faces the threat of a coup. Acting swiftly, Mikeli strikes at the powerful
family behind the attack: the Verrakaien, magelords possessing ancient sorcery,
steeped in death and evil. Mikeli’s survival—and that of Tsaia—depend on the
only Verrakai whose magery is not tainted with innocent blood.
Two kings stand at a pivotal point in the history of their
world. For dark forces are gathering against them, knit in a secret conspiracy
more sinister—and far more ancient—than they can imagine.
