With his back against the wall, Drisdan faces a choice that teeters on the edge of impossibility: bow to the whims of the ruthless Lord Norgal, or place the lives of those he holds dear in dire peril.
The gravity of their situation leaves Tryssa and their companions reeling, none more so than Meredith, who is ensnared in a dreaded fate as the chosen bride of the so-called Lunatic Lord.
Yet, hope is not lost. In the heart of desperation, Drisdan and Tryssa harness their rogue expertise and cling to the slender thread of fortune. Their plan is daring and twofold: secure their freedom and return the Mistral Gifts, the kingdom's source of magic, to its rightful sovereign. Can they outwit their oppressors and see the realm restored, or will their gamble lead to ruin? The legacy of a kingdom hangs in the balance.
