Discover the fast-paced epic fantasy series by USA Today Bestselling Author Meg Cowley, filled with magic, dragons, and intrigue, that has readers gripped.
Who murdered the queen? Her son is framed. It was almost perfect.
The kingdom of Caledan is in turmoil after the queen’s murder. Her son and heir, Soren, is framed for the killing by his uncle, who seizes the legendary throne of the Dragon Kings and rules with an iron fist to crush rising dissent.
Soren is a fugitive; his only friend a broken, old man. Soren must survive, but the odds are greatly against him. If no-one follows him, or believes his innocence, is he worthy to rule? The dragons, allies of the throne, may hold the answers, but their whereabouts is a mystery that died with the queen. If he can find them, will they be the allies he seeks?
Across the kingdom, Soren’s cousin Eve takes matters into her own hands and journeys to the ethereal Eldarkind on his behalf, where she discovers an inescapable fate. As she comes to terms with the gift and the curse of magic, Eve risks her life to help Soren. Will it be enough?
Before the fragile peace shatters, can Soren reclaim the throne - and should he?
