In the decades since an innocent human slave was taken to Castle Dragon, against her will, for the sole purpose of bearing a son for the monarchy, much has changed in the Realm: Alliances made in secret have flourished; sons born of veiled paternity have grown to adulthood; and dangerous warlocks, seasoned witches, and cunning shades have risen to powerful positions.
Yet all is not as it seems.
Beneath the shadow of an eerie double moon, a dark, tormented evil is rising...
A prophecy is beckoning: "It is time. It is time." And a lethal dragon prince is growing restless to seize the throne of his bestial ancestors.
King Demitri will never step aside.
Mina Louvet--indeed, all the Sklavos Ahavi are caught between worlds.
And the web of lies spun by the eldest dragon prince--the treachery, deception,and perversion--may very well spark a war of fire and fury unlike anything the Realm has ever seen--or hoped to survive.
Great reward requires greater risk, and every beating heart will be wagered in this high-stakes game of blood and reckoning.
