Magic, dragons, elves; this noblebright coming of age saga has it all.
Prince Soren is framed for his mother's murder. A world is at stake - but first he must reclaim his throne, and peace.
The kingdom of Caledan is in turmoil after the queen’s murder. Her son and heir, Soren, is framed for the killing by his uncle, who seizes the legendary throne of the Dragon Kings and rules with an iron fist to crush rising dissent.
Soren is a fugitive; his only friend a broken, old man. Soren must survive, but the odds are greatly against him. If no-one follows him, or believes his innocence, is he worthy to rule? The dragons, allies of the throne, may hold the answers, but their whereabouts is a mystery that died with the queen. If he can find them, will they be the allies he seeks?
Across the kingdom, Soren’s cousin Eve takes matters into her own hands and journeys to the ethereal Eldarkind on his behalf, where she discovers an inescapable fate. As she comes to terms with the gift and the curse of magic, Eve risks her life to help Soren. Will it be enough?
Across the kingdom, the ripples spread. Much more is at stake than anyone realises, but first, peace must be restored to Caledan; the kingdom at the heart of it all.. but it is not that simple.
Before the fragile peace shatters, can Soren reclaim the throne - and should he?
