(Serengard #2) | Release Date: February 25, 2014 | ISBN: 9780984919437
When Serengard rebels and the Orion monarchy falls, former crown princess Kierstaz Orion’s love for her people becomes a burning desire to set things right. With a price on their heads, Kierstaz and her brother Mikel lead a handful of men against the new army, fighting skirmishes all along the border of Dreibourge. But months of heavy bloodshed force her small band of knights to abandon the border—and all of Serengard—to the rebels.
Nine years and a thousand betrayals later…
Kierstaz and Mikel again find themselves on the run—only this time, they’ve a boy in tow: Malcom, the son of two of the Seren rebellion’s strongest leaders. The new regime wants him dead, Mikel wants him alive, and it’s all Kierstaz can do to keep their tracks covered. Desperate to preserve the innocent life she swore to protect and the brother who has always stood by her, Kierstaz must gamble the last thing in the world she owns: her identity. Secrets are a staple of the Orion family, and those Kierstaz keeps are as dangerous as the ones kept from her.
In this thrilling sequel to Coldness of Marek, loyalties and alliances are turned on their heads, vows are made and broken, and no one escapes unscathed.
