Love and war are often the same thing.

Prince Karhiad is a humble king-in-waiting. His father, King Vilsig, rules the Kingdom of Merrhius with an iron fist. While the king dreams of endless conquests, his son only wants to conquer the hearts of his subjects through love instead of fear.

Meanwhile, a dark and sinister force threatens every kingdom around. And if King Vilsig and Prince Karhiad can't put aside their differences, an ancient sinister beast and his supernatural army will lay waste to the Kingdom of Merrhius.

On the night of Prince Karhiad’s 17th birthday, he is mesmerized by a radiant light and makes a decision to learn of its origin. That choice will force him towards answers he wasn't seeking, a woman he wasn't planning to fall in love with, and a destiny that will bring him great suffering yet an even greater reward. But in this gripping tale of good vs. evil, the power of love isn't just a shield to ward off the darkness -- it's also the strongest weapon of all.



EXCERPT ON TOUR

“So, um, where…” She was eager to change the subject. “Where else have you traveled? Do you journey outside your kingdom walls often? Have you met people from different cultures?” 

“I’ve traveled many miles on the outer stretches of my kingdom. It was part of my training to know all the terrain. The most interesting culture I’ve encountered would have to be those living in Ananias. They don’t have walls, so I guess they are considered just a village.” 

“Oh, yes. I’ve read about them. How did you find them?” 

“I don’t know the details of it. When I was a young adolescent, there was a man in our military who said he found a unique culture and wanted us all to meet them. My father took me out with him and the rest of the traveling troops to encounter them.” 

“Interesting. Well, why do you call them a village just because they don’t have walls?” 

“Well, because a kingdom…” Karhiad started strongly, then quickly realized he had no definitive answer. It was just something he was taught without explanation. 

Faith gently laughed as his inability to explain himself. 

He decided to avoid the question and move onto something else. “They don’t speak our language, nor do they seem to know Latin. It made it a little difficult to communicate with them. The path to them is very narrow. We tried to explain to them they should open up their path, to clear it better for safety, but they didn’t understand us.” 

“Ha! Ha! Perhaps they did understand you. They just didn’t understand your theory for widening their path.” She took a moment to allow that to soak in. He smiled at her, mostly because she laughed and he found that endearing. “Taking a narrow path can be hard, and not many people are willing to take that road. They’d rather create their own path that is comfortable and wide. Many people will travel that path because they want what is easy.


About the Author

I am a friend of Jesus who at times fails at making this is my most important relationship. I am a wife who forgets at times this is my primary job. I am a mom who at times didn't get it right. I take lots of pictures that annoy everyone in my family except for my dog. She loves it.

I began writing short stories when I was a child. I would sit in my room for hours writing as fast as I could to keep up with my thoughts. We didn't have a typewriter and certainly no computer. Too often my writing would turn to scribble. I ended up with lots of loose paper with many short stories written on them in half scribble that made it too difficult for others to read. Thanks to technology, I went back to my childhood passion and wrote a story that I turned into a readable book.

That's me, to make a long story short.
