Ciardis Weathervane returned to the imperial court of Sandrin to unite her foes. But her efforts hit a stumbling block. The imperial kind. She never thought that before rallying an empire, she’d have to fight the emperor himself.
An imposter sits the throne and the court she turned to for help is in turmoil. Ciardis hasn’t survived assassination attempts, torture and really bad luck to be taken down by her own ruler. So she devises a plan. But first she needs to get Sebastian and Thanar to agree. Each seems to love her in their own way. But neither is listening to her. Pushing them to put aside their differences, in an effort to ward off catastrophe, might be harder than displacing an emperor who would do anything to keep his throne.
Butting heads at court isn’t Ciardis’s only problem. With the princess heir’s threat looming she is forced to travel to the mythical city of Kifar, where it is up to her small group to stop the destruction of the entire city while heading a rebellion that could foment a revolution. It wouldn’t be the first revolution that Algardis has ever known. But with Ciardis Weathervane at its head—it would certainly be the last.
This fifth novel continues the story of Ciardis Weathervane from Sworn To Secrecy
Back in the court of Sandrin we see changes happening with the trio. You will learn with Ciardis that things always happen for a reason. She with her guys will be working towards another adventure but have to get certain things finalized before hand. However, we did find out something that messes up plans until the end. This one was a lot of plotting that happened so certain things in the next books that would work out. Not much action is in this one but you still need to read it to understand what will be happening next.
