Sometimes there is no right, good choice.
There is only forward or backward.
Queen Amelia has barely survived her first year of marriage
to the wicked King Alaric.
When she accepted his marriage proposal arranged by their fathers, she believed it her sole opportunity to fulfill her birthright as ruler of Dathoviel and protect her brother from the throne he feared.
But she can no longer sit back and watch helplessly as her husband destroys her land and starves her people. She must find the strength to fight back.
However, King Alaric will not be relinquishing his crown without a fight. He has sought this power his entire life, done things -terrible things- to ensure it rests upon his head. And he has no problem committing a few more sins to keep it there.
Amelia knows she must save her people and defeat her monstrous husband, but how do you fight wicked without becoming a wicked monster yourself?
Supported by her true love, Lady Caroline and their loyal companions, Amelia fights to save her kingdom, avenge a murder… and prove she was born to reign without a king.
