His youthful actions are responsible for killing his father. The entire kingdom of Ferrelär is in upheaval. Then he hears Lord Ansél has amazing plans for him.
Raqhel feels forced to flee the palace—not knowing her life’s in danger. Really? They want to kill her! How can a princess survive in the real world, outside the palace? She has little or no practical knowledge. What can she do?
Will the Primate completely kill the Known? Can these two youths help each other recover from their grief and anger? Will Ansél deliver the Kingdom?
Get caught up in the drama and romance of this wondrous world
This all takes place in a strange, yet familiar world—where the people live and work under the thumbs of royalty, the rich, and the Anselan church. The tale focuses on the lives of a strange group of people called the Known by themselves—who are almost totally unknown in society at large. However, the Primate of the traditional church knowns them, hates them, and is trying to kill all of them before they spoil his plans.
The king is weak and unknowingly controlled by forces of evil. Their influence is rapidly growing throughout Ferrelär. It’s a nation filled with beauty and horror, love and hate, hope and despair.
