Trouble stirs between nations and rebellion threatens Faeraven.

When Kai returns with the supposed DawnKing, Lof Shraen Elcon cannot trust that the Elder youth truly is the prophesied deliverer. Driven to prove himself, Elcon banishes the boy and embarks on a peace-keeping campaign into the Elder lands, where he falls in love with an Elder princess betrothed to another.

Sometimes the deliverance of a nation comes only through the humility of one.

Declaring his love would shame the nations, but Elcon is torn. As war approaches, Elcon̢۪s choices lead him on a journey of discovery that will either settle the lands or leave them mired in conflict. Can his kingdom ever be united, or will the consequences of his decisions forever tear asunder the fabric of Faeraven?

[Note: In this scene, Elcon is riding with his childhood friend and prospective bride. The Fiann are smallfolk similar to fairies.]
The late summer sun, coming bold at this hour, glinted off the gold of Arillia’s hair and backlit her pale skin. Elcon’s laughter died. “You look stunning.”
Her smile gave way to a look of desire. Their eyes locked, and he bent to place a kiss upon her cheek. He meant only to brush her skin with his lips, but she turned her head and their lips met and clung. Elcon drew back, narrowed his eyes against the sun, and took a calming breath. She looked so luminous he wondered if, to enchant him, one of the Fiann had changed places with the Arillia he knew.
She fixed her pale gray eyes upon him. “Do you remember, Elcon, how in our early days we promised to marry one another?”
He tilted his head and looked at her, trying to connect a memory to her statement, but his mind went blank. “Yes?”
Her smile faltered. “Oh, that you would forget your promise to me.” Her voice changed, took on warmth. “I cherished it, you see.”
“Pray remind me.”
“I should let you suffer longer, but I’ll not. We only agreed to wed one another because our parents wished it and to protect ourselves from other suitors.”
“I remember something, now that you mention the matter.”
Her gray eyes took him in. “I think it, now, not so bad an idea.”
“Have you a suitor you despise?”
She chortled. “I didn’t mean it that way.”
“Then you have no other suitor? I shall take comfort in that knowledge, although I can scarce credit it.”
“I want no other suitor, Elcon. You are quite enough.”

The High Queen is dying...

At the royal summons, Shae mounts a wingabeast and soars through the air to the high hold of Faeraven, where all is not as it seems. Visions warn her of danger, and a dark soul touches hers in the night. When she encounters an attractive but disturbing musician, her wayward heart awakens.

But then there is Kai, a guardian of Faeraven and of Shae. Secrets bind him to her, and her safety lies at the center of every decision he makes.

On a desperate journey fraught with peril and the unknown, they battle warlike garns, waevens, ferocious raptors, and the wraiths of their own regrets. Yet, they must endure the campaign long enough to release the DawnKing and the salvation he offers into a divided land. To prevail, each must learn that sometimes victory comes only through surrender.
