Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave. Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country. For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else . . .
After millennia of peace, the Mirror Planes have collided and the Furies have returned. Caught in the onslaught of these forces, Luc Viamar-Ellandor and the nation of Penthar have withstood the first skirmish, if barely. Now the nation of Penthar must weigh rumors of the Legion of the Earthbound to the north and south. Eldin Viamar, King, considers abdicating. The Warden of Ardil and the White Rose of Alingdor return to find the son they left behind considerably changed and no longer the young man he had been. News the Fallen and the Earthbound have seized the Ancaidan capital leave the lords of Penthar in doubt over whether to risk war to stop the Furies and save the neighboring nation or see it destroyed in an attempt to recover the Sword of Ardil and end the threat of one of their most dangerous foes. Knowledge that to the far east in the Mountains of Memory a rising darkness is stirring leaves Luc with little choice. He must announce his ancestry and hidden identity in the hopes he will be able to muster the armies of Penthar and unite the west against the gathering menace. With his memories clouded and images of a ruined city and conflict predating the rise of men pursuing him, Luc must learn to control newfound abilities knowing even a victory to the south might not see them survive the rise of the Unmaker.
