A cursed princess.
A crippled kingdom.
A bloody family secret.
When Gwenna is denied a Blessing of Beauty at her birth, breaking centuries of royal tradition, the consensus is that she’s cursed.
A royal life without beauty is manageable. But when Gwenna is discovered with magical glowing hands standing over the king’s corpse, she begins to second-guess. Her curse is spreading. First, killing the king, then conjuring a devastating storm that dries up all the water in the kingdom overnight and leaves behind a crippling heat.
The only way to find answers about her curse is to confront the magical beings who cursed her as a baby. But the Fairies have disappeared. When a deadly Shifter appears to Gwenna and hints at having the answers she needs, she is forced to choose.
Gwenna is willing to be kidnapped by a murderer if that’s what it takes. But she is unprepared for the bloody family secrets she will uncover.
