War offers little respite for the bold, and as King Erik’s bodyguard, Captain Alix Black is no exception. Though recently married to Prince Liam White and finally reunited with her brother, Commander General Riggard Black, Alix’s duty to Erik has never been so important… or so difficult.
The Oridian Warlord amasses his forces for invasion. Without aid, the Kingdom of Alden will surely fall, but gaining new allies will mean risking the few Erik already has. Riggard and his men must hold the line at the border, while Liam is sent to Onnan City to secure their fleet of ships, leaving Alix and Erik to the most dangerous task of all: crossing the Broken Mountains to seek an alliance with the Kingdom of Harram, an aloof nation led by a famously prickly king.
The mountain pass cuts through enemy territory, is notoriously tough to navigate, and is plagued with warring tribes. But securing Harram’s army would turn the tide of the war, so Alix will do whatever it takes to protect Erik and his diplomatic mission. But even she may be no match for the insidious assault Erik’s enemies are preparing to deploy…
