"This fantasy novel featuring the delightful (though tormented) Prince Karhiad, was a pleasure to read. The author's voice and writing style is simply dazzling. When I climbed aboard this book and took the journey with the Prince, I felt transported to a new world. Really excellent writing here." - Judge, 6th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Award
Love and war are often the same thing.
Prince Karhiad is a humble king-in-waiting. His father, King Vilsig, rules the Kingdom of Merrhius with an iron fist. While the king dreams of endless conquests, his son only wants to conquer the hearts of his subjects through love instead of fear.
Meanwhile, a dark and sinister force threatens every kingdom around. And if King Vilsig and Prince Karhiad can't put aside their differences, this ancient evil beast and his supernatural army will lay waste to the Kingdom of Merrhius.
On the night of Prince Karhiad's 17th birthday, he is mesmerized by a radiant light and makes a decision to learn of its origin. That choice will force him towards answers he wasn't seeking, a woman he wasn't planning to fall in love with, and a destiny that will bring him great suffering and yet an even greater reward. But in this gripping tale of good vs. evil, the power of love isn't just a shield to ward off the darkness -- it's also the strongest weapon of all.
