I thought I was protected from the forces seeking to kill me, until Prince Marcus came to court and all my illusions of safety were shattered when I was forced to flee my life as a Divine Princess.
Now, the only reason I’m alive is due to Darric Ursygh—whose bloody history and violent tendencies could get me killed before I ever experience a life outside of royal chains.
As supernatural talents emerge from my hands and first love claims my heart, I’ve realized dreaming isn’t the only mysterious power of the Fae, and the world is right to fear them. . .
