War escalates as tensions rise between the queen who rose from death and the knight who pledged his life to her.
Reuyen Detua, the eighteen-year-old daughter of a horse dealer, has been accused of being a traitor to the kingdom of Rarke. Balroid Peijak Mariposa, the reincarnated knight who was once her half-brother and most loyal follower, is now the leader of the enemy army, and he only wants one thing: Reuyen back at his side, so they can fight together against the army of Rarke.
It's clear to everyone, including Paseid Calandok Brionake, the commander-in-chief of the Rarkian army, that the two have a history. Even though Reuyen helped Paseid take down an enemy fort that seemed impossible to destroy, he won't believe she isn't secretly working for Balroid. He has even more trouble believing the story she tells him-that she's the reincarnated Queen Swan Rarkalia, a queen who was known for felling kingdoms and killing in cold blood wherever she went, until her husband turned on her and she was beheaded.
As Reuyen balances on the edge of a knife between the two men, she examines the decisions she made in her past life and realizes she must pick a side once and for all. Her choice will determine the future of the war.
