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: After visiting the poor, Princess Aewen returns bedraggled to her bedchamber. Her mother awaits her.]
“I see the storm caught you.”
She recovered her balance and peered up at her mother.
Inydde, Queen of Westerland, clad in a garment of blue silk and with her black hair dressed and gleaming, held an expression of bemused exasperation.
Aewen sighed. “It did.”
Inydde frowned at her. “Come then and change before you catch your death of cold. I have news for you, but I’ll wait until your maid tends you to give it.”
She swept past her mother and into the outer chamber where Murial awaited her, drying cloths in hand. Her maid, long familiar with Aewen’s comings and goings, never met her unprepared.
Murial handed her the cloths and bent to the hearth where flames embraced a steaming iron kettle. Her knees creaked, and she groaned a little as she lifted the heavy kettle and filled a brass ewer. The sideways look she gave Aewen would normally have held a twinkle, but today her wrinkled face could not be more somber. Aewen followed into her inner chamber without further delay.
Her servant made her presentable and Aewen returned to her outer chamber, more dry than wet now and much improved. Inydde waited for her in the outer chamber, having moved to the white-and-gilt bench nearest the fire. Aewen joined her, moving close to the fire’s warmth. Inydde patted the cushion embroidered in colorful silk flowers. Aewen sat, perching on the cushion’s edge with her back straight, and waited for her mother to speak.
Inydde smiled. “You look quite another matter now. If I did not know you as the same drowned waif who entered your door, I’d not credit it.”
Aewen lifted the corners of her lips in what she hoped passed for a smile. Inydde took a breath. “You are beautiful, daughter, and of an age to marry.”
Aewen fastened her gaze on the sapphire brooch pinned to her mother’s bodice. How the gemstones gleamed and threw back the firelight.
“As you know, King Devlon of Darksea honors us with his presence. He and his son, Prince Raefe, come to us on a special errand.”
The silence stretched so long Aewen wrenched her gaze from the brooch and looked instead at the sapphire of her mother’s eyes.
The hint of a smile curved Inydde’s lips. “King Devlon has asked for your hand in marriage on behalf of his son, Raefe.”
Aewen could not have spoken even if she had summoned the wit. She stared at the hands twined together in her lap. Her knuckles showed white.

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.
