Lady Isabel of Almerry is a force to be reckoned with—tall, with long black hair and piercing green eyes, she has mastered the skills of a knight, forged in the flames of tragedy. The brutal murder of her mother shattered her trust, leaving her with a heart guarded by steel walls. But when her loyal lady-in-waiting, Clarisse, vanishes without a trace, Isabel's unwavering determination propels her into the treacherous unknown.

United by a common purpose, Isabel and Ariston raise an army, ready to face the looming threat.

Lady Isabel stood outside of Castle Almerry, staring up at its grand façade. Thick fog wrapped around her and clung to the castle walls like a protective shield. She shivered as the wind blew her cloak around her ankles.

She should not be out tonight, alone, but there was none other she could trust. Her lady-in-waiting and closest friend, Clarisse Whyte, disappeared three nights past. She feared someone within the castle’s walls bore responsibility for the lady’s absence. But when she took her concerns to her father, Earl Nathanial Staunton, he had ignored her. Father refused any help and brushed off Clarisse’s disappearance as if she had simply left without a word all of her own accord.

Isabel knew better. Clarisse had been her lady-in-waiting for years and had become Isabel’s best friend. The two of them were more like sisters, truly. She never would have abandoned Isabel without a by your leave. Someone had taken her, abducted her, and Isabel meant to rescue her.

Spinning on her heels, she set herself in motion, the fog and blackness of night providing cover for her escape. Rumor had it a seer lived near the River Tweed’s bank. She had heard tell if one found the thatched cottage and presented a gold piece, the seer would gladly provide her services. Isabel placed her hand inside the cloak’s pocket, wrapping her fingers around the gold pieces concealed within. With renewed confidence, she propelled herself into the forest.
