Although Branford is broken and desperate, he finds himself with no choice: He must declare war against Hadebrand, or Edgar’s evil darkness will envelop the commonwealth. Silverhelm’s army is grossly outnumbered, but Branford underestimates the people’s love for their commoner queen. The people rise up in support of their beloved regent, and Branford sees a glimmer of hope for his wife. He becomes more determined than ever to make up for his previous failures and secure the future of his kingdom.
With their murderous intentions, the treacherous King Edgar and Princess Whitney must pay for what they have done. They must not be allowed to destroy everything the people hold dear.
With but faint hope in his heart, Branford gathers his people and marches toward the castle in Hadebrand, gathering allies along the way. With the support of other noble families, Branford will have to find the strength to fight for the very survival of his own family and the entire kingdom.

4 stars!

All good things come to an end! This seven part Historical series has been a great company these past few months and it ending is bittersweet.


All of you who waited to for it to be published, you can now read the complete series back to back and get to know these amazing characters and another shining example of how amazing Shay Savage is and how captivating her books are. I have yet to read a book of hers I haven’t at least enjoyed and a lot of hers are my favorites, including this series.


Branford and Alexandra have a final obstacle to overcome and oh my feels they do. This book is from his POV – finally – and it’s amazing! Being in his head is so fascinating and I’ve said this again but Shay can write a mean male POV, so worth the wait!

Kings & Queens, evil Princesses and court drama, this series has it all
