Princess Bashalis has entered into exile with her brother, the deposed, former king of Cerecia. The new monarch requires them to travel with a handler who will monitor them and prevent Chysh from undermining the current regime from afar. Their former servant, Hatch, volunteers for the job. It soon becomes apparent that he is more than he seems, and his loyalties lie elsewhere.
Bashalis’ musical ability and easy-going manners recommend her to everyone’s affections wherever she goes. Her talents are in high demand, and more than one man becomes enamored by her charms. Her family’s murderous background held no examples of marital bliss for her to use as a standard, making true love difficult to recognize.
Depression and hopelessness plague Chysh as all he has ever striven for is lost to him. He alternates between wallowing in despair or lashing out in anger. With nothing left to live for, his sole purpose is to care for his sister, but his controlling nature gets the better of him. Can he and Bashalis find a home where they feel welcome and content? Follow them on their journey to discover true peace and belonging.
