It is felt by many that she should not be the ruler, she is scorned as a sorceress by most people of Kensrik.
Her life is ruined, one could say, by the traumatic events that brought her to the position of ruler, but she must make use of the few remaining loyal friends an allies that she has at her side, because although she never asked to be ruler of Kensrik, this is her fate, and she must rule it to the best of her abilities, in order to keep the restless empire in one piece.
But she is also attempting to identify the conspirators who forced rulership upon her. And then she can deal with them. But is this risking her own life and the lives of her loyal followers?
And what of Derek? He is an aimless, feckless wanderer, the youngest member of a once proud and noble family, long fallen from the position that it once held. Tradition summons him to serve someone who is, also by tradition, his bitterest of enemies.

Then there is Duke Lenn, he found love, but this all consuming love cost him everything he held dear.
His legacy has shaped the present that Chandra and Derek are struggling to exist within. Now the choices and options that face them will shape the future of Kensrik for ever...
What will they do? How will they cope? Who are their real enemies?
