The country of Alwyn is in the midst of a civil war between a power-hungry king and a relatively small group of rebels intent on creating a new, more equal kingdom. The result of the war would change the Alwyn and its people forever. Men and women have been willing to risk life, limb, and sanity so that their side might prevail.
One woman, however, has absolutely no intention of risking anything for either cause. As far as Amara is concerned, they can waste all the time they wanted fighting one another – just as long as they keep her out of it. Despite her best efforts, however, a miscalculation lands Amara right in the middle of the whole mess, forcing her to become a player in the bloody, dangerous game which she had so hoped to avoid.
