The end of an Empire, the rise of a Queen

Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long-lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.

With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.

Some things are better left in the shadows

It was half-whispered, but his face drained of color all the same. A knife she didn’t know he had on him was suddenly at her throat as he shoved her against the nearest tree. The steel bit into her neck, droplets of blood trickling down her skin.

A slight breeze tousled her hair as he breathed heavily, eyes flicking back and forth as he took her in. Narrowing them, he murmured, “So you are both dangerous and important.”

She had nothing to say because she agreed. He huffed, talking more to himself, “Today really couldn’t get any worse, could it?”

Dropping the knife, he ran his hand through his hair.

“I’m assuming you had mistaken my twin brother for me, but the more important question is, how he could be alive when I thought him to be dead years ago? When the Academy fell—”

She cut him off, “It never fell.”

He tilted his head in question.

“Over the years, a resistance has been building…hiding from Adair until we were betrayed. Alby was part of this, but Adair—he has him.” The words came out in a rush.

“So it was true. There were always theories, but it seemed too unrealistic that some of the most influential people of our country would stand by and do nothing while thousands died.”

She cringed as if he had slapped her.

“Especially you, Emory Fae…you alone could have gotten Adair’s attention. Anyone who is anyone knows about Adair’s blood feud with your family. Exactly how is it that you of all people are alive?”

Before she could answer, a husky voice called out, “Azarius!””

He snapped to attention, the knife flashing back to hold her from running. His anger was stifling.
