To save her kingdom, a simple village girl must live a royal lie.
The powerful kingdom of Sigurd has slowly been conquering all the lands that share its borders, and now it has turned its voracious attention to the small, resource-rich Tyr. Tyr cannot hope to match Sigurd in strength, so in order to survive, it must rely on the intelligence, skill and cunning of its prince and his loyal knights. But should their prince fall, so too shall Tyr…
The fate of Nacht hangs in the balance as Freya and Edda confront a cornered Queen Sophie. With the life of the infant crown prince at stake, the only weapon they have left is the truth. But will that be enough to wrest control from Sophie before the Sigurdian reinforcements reach the fort?!
