Prince Silas has a problem. For all his fifteen years, he’s been anticipating the day he would become king. The hot-headed heir is determined to leave his mark on the world as one of the small nation’s greatest rulers. After his father unexpectedly dies, he’s thrust into national leadership amid a brewing civil war, and he thinks he’s come upon the perfect shot at legendary fame.
But before he’s hardly sat on the throne, his brother brings him crushing news. Silas has no royal blood. He’s been raised in a family that’s not his own. Should others learn of this, he would be expelled from the castle and doomed to a forgotten life.
Now, Silas is caught between two terrors. Should he bow to his manipulative brother and provoke the war, temporarily preserving his reign? Or should he save his country, prevent the war, but lose what matters most to him?
