Targa thought herself forever blessed with exile, but when her sainted mother summons her back home, she dare not disobey. Mother has ambitions to rule Astrea itself, with Targa as her puppet on the throne. If they succeed, she will be damned to a lifetime of rulership subservience. Targa’s only hope resides in the goodwill of her greatest enemy.
Early next year will be The Phoenix and the Swan, wrapping up the series.
