Since then, he has kept her trapped in her swan form. With the loss of balance between Dark and Light, winter has descended and the Draíolon of Éadrolan lose more power every day.

Lorcan and Evelayn become partners in a desperate quest to return the balance of power to Lachalonia. How far will this partnership go? Can friendship -- perhaps even love -- bloom where hatred has taken root?

Damian, too, had fought and lost so very much. He and I were
alike in more ways than onewed both had to play parts to protect ourselves, and wed both seen our families wiped out. Id
watched my parents and brother die at the hands of our enemies,
but Damian...He had been forced to kill his own father in order
to protect his people. Those scars were the type that no one could
see, but would never truly heal.
The lit torch propped in the bracket across from Damians
door flickered suddenly, as if a gust of wind had blown past it,
although I felt nothing. My hand dropped to the hilt of my sword.
As I peered into the darkness to my right, there was nothing to see
except a long stretch of empty hallway.
I crossed in front of Damians door again, my thoughts turning to my king, as they often did. Though Id made my choice, and
convinced Damian that I didnt have any feelings for him, it was
yet one more buried wound that I carried with me. I could never
let him uncover the trutht hat not only did I have feelings for
him, but I was still in love with him. I would do whatever it took
to keep our new king safe and to help him rebuild his kingdom
and be the best ruler he could be, even if it meant causing him pain
now. It was the right thing to do.
That dedication to his safety and well-being was why I never
complained about taking the night shifts like some of the other
guards didusually the new ones. I was still unaccustomed to
their faces and voices, rather than those of my old friends: Jude.
Kai. Antonio. So many others.
Alexa. A familiar voice called out my namemy real name
making me jump. I turned around to see Deron striding toward
me from the other direction. Maybe someday I would get used to
Sire, I understand your concern, I began haltingly, still staring at the wall past Damians bare shoulder, but it would be
unwise to assume that this is a friendly delegation. King Armando
is the one who sent Iker to your father. What if there is another
black sorcerer with them?
He stiffened when I used the word sire. He hated it when I
didnt call him by his name. But Id made my choiceId led him
to believe I didnt love him anymore, that I didnt trust him. Id
done it for his own good, and for the good of the kingdom. Even
though I knew Id made the right choice, that didnt make it any
easier to live with the consequences. The only way to survive my
self-imposed torture was to force up some kind of barrier. If there
is a sorcerer of any sort, Ill know it and so will Eljin, Damian said,
his voice matching the frostiness of his expression. But we cant
assume that their intentions are malicious. Armando is my uncle.
Did Damian hope that his uncle had benevolent intentions
toward Antion, even though hed been the one to send Iker, a
black sorcerer, to his own brotherDamians father?
And if they attack us?
Damian finally looked directly at me. When our eyes met, the
hardness of his gaze sent a jolt through me. The stonelike mask on
Damians handsome face was my fault. The hurt that lurked in the
bright blue depths of his eyes was because of me.
It tore me apart inside to see all the love, all the passion I had
once inspired in him wiped away, replaced by the same facade hed
presented to the world for years to protect himself from his fathers
Then well fight themjust like we fought Iker, Damian
Alexa was barely able to beat Iker, Deron pointed out, his
voice gentle. But however kindly he said it, it didnt ease the pain
of his words. I fought the urge to touch my scarred cheek again as
the memories of that horrible day threatened to surge up. What if
theres more than one black sorcerer this time?
Something inside of me clenched when Damians gaze flickered down to my cheek, then back to my eyes. Black sorcerers
are not common, he said after a pause. I doubt theyll have one
Deron shook his head. Im sorry, Sire, but its our duty to
assume the worst. And then try to prepare for it. We cant take
risks with your life.
At Derons words, my fingers tightened around the hilt of my
sword. I wont let them hurt you, I said before I could stop
myself, my voice low. Damian tensed, his eyes widening slightly
a tiny crack in his veneer. I forced myself to tear my eyes away from
the king, to stare at the floor instead, lest he see the emotions Id
spent the last month suppressing.
Weve kept the man waiting too long, Deron said suddenly,
before Damian could respond. We need to bring him inside; we
can discuss the details of what we should do in the morning.
There was another long pause before Damian spoke. Fine, but
I would like you to come up with a solution that wont slow down
the building project. Damian stood there for a moment longer,
but when I wouldnt meet his gaze again, he turned on his heel
and stalked back into his room, slamming the door shut behind him.
I flinched but didnt move, waiting for Derons orders.
Stay here and finish out your shift. Ill take care of the runner. Deron turned away but then paused. Alexa... he spoke
hesitantly. Are you...and the king... He trailed off uncomfortably, and my stomach clenched. The last thing I neededor
wantedwas for Deron to try and talk to me about the situation with Damian. Now that everyone knew I was a girl, most of
the other guards treated me differentlythey seemed to think
that I was suddenly weaker than I used to be, even though I
hadnt changed. I was still the same persont he same soldier
Id always been. But no one else saw it that way, except for Rylan,
whod always known.
Youd better not keep the runner waiting any longer, I said
curtly, standing up taller, with a glare that I hoped clearly conveyed my desire to drop the subject.
He gave me a searching look but nodded. All right. Ill see
you tomorrow, then. He turned away again, and this time he
When he was out of sight, I had to fight the urge to sag against
the wall; my legs felt strangely weak and my heart wouldnt stop
racing. But instead, I stood up even straighter, throwing my shoulders back. I was a guardt his was my duty. I wouldnt be the one
found relaxing on the job, allowing something, or someone, to get
past me. My life was devoted to protecting my king.
But the expression on Damians face wouldnt leave me, the
pain he was so adept at hiding from everyoneeveryone but me.
I, who knew him best and had hurt him the worst.
What if the person he needed protection from the most was me?
this man was small and wiry, and his thin lips turned down at the
corners. His hair was sparse on top of his head, and his eyes narrowed as he silently appraised me, his gaze first landing on my
chest, then on my scars. I looked away, back to my king, as I came
to a halt in front of the throne where he stood to greet us. A combination of indignation and shame twisted my stomach. I still
struggled when people openly stared at my disfigurement.
Sire, I said, pressing my fist to my shoulder and bowing
deeply at the waist to Damian.
You may rise, he said, his voice holding a note of tension. I
straightened and ascended the stairs to take my place on his right
side. Rylan moved over for me. Everyone knew that the king
wished for me to be directly beside him whenever I was on duty.
But very few knew all the reasons why.
Deron stayed at the base of the stairs, subtly moving closer to
the runner from Dansii. The rest of the guard flanked the king,
four to each side of the throne. Rylan and I and two of the new
guardsJulian and Oliveron the right. Asher, Mateo, Jerrod,
and the other new guard, Leon, on the left. Looking at them
reminded me that I wasnt the only guard who bore scars from
King Hectors rule. Deron, Asher, Mateo, and Jerrod all bore
matching red lines on their facest heir punishment for letting
Eljin kidnap the prince, even though none of them had been on
duty. But none was quite as disfigured as I was, after my battle
with Iker. For some reason, people seemed to respect them more
because of the marks on their faces. I was the only one who got the
stares and whispers. I never knew if it was because of the striated,
silvery scars covering my cheek, jaw, and neck on one half of my
face, or the fact that I was a girl. Or both.
kingdom. They could do with some upkeep, but they were passable, so I suppose that is commendable. Although the same cannot
be said for some of the villages we passed through.
Damians fingers tightened on the armrests of his throne, but
other than that, he gave no outside indication of his displeasure.
Well, as you say, we do a tolerable job. For a jungle kingdom. He
paused, letting the sarcastic bite to his words sink in. And especially considering the great toll the war took on our nation and
Ah yes. The war that is now over. All thanks to you, if Ive
heard correctly. Again the runners gaze flickered to me and then
back to the king.
I glanced down at Damian out of the corner of my eye. Tension
coiled around him, but he kept his expression slightly amused, as
if this man were nothing more than a nuisance. What did you say
your name was again?
Felton, Your Majesty. He gave a tiny bow.
Before Damian could say whatever hed been planning on
next, the doors at the other end of the long hall opened. One
of the sentinels entered. He saluted Damian and then loudly
announced, The delegation from Dansii has arrived and requests
permission to come before Damian, king of Antion.
My hand immediately dropped to rest on the hilt of my sword.
There was no word from Eljin yet, so until they got close enough
for Damian to feel for himself, we wouldnt know if they had any
sorcerers with them.
Damian moved as though he was about to stand but then
apparently changed his mind and relaxed back into his throne.
