A homeless prince, a grueling mission, an unlikely hope
When unspeakable tragedy strikes Prince Jack’s family, he’s left with one desire: vengeance. Now living in exile and serving a foreign king, Jack perfects his talent with the sword. He’s sent to the desert for spy and assassin training, dreaming of the day he’ll use these skills to drive a dagger into Ingvar’s heart.
Jack plunges into his training and finds a new family of sorts, whose morally gray members rid the city of vile criminals. But as the desert Lord Anwar readies for battle, allegiances shatter, blood runs in the streets, and the shadow of death looms near. During a last effort to complete his seemingly impossible mission, Jack chances upon a slave girl with a Northern accent and eyes so familiar that he makes a hasty vow.
He always thought he’d defeat his nightmares by becoming one.
Could that nightmare fade into a new dream? And could that strange slave girl
be at the heart of it all?
“There’s no shame in asking for help when you need it.”
Helita was silent a long time. When she next spoke, her voice was full of tears. “You don’t speak like a killer.”
Jack grunted. Like she knew what a killer sounded like.
