In the aftermath of the Great Upheaval, Princess Evlyn, sole heir to the throne of Eltin Valley, has come of age. Lord Evro gave her this advice: “Treat politics the same way that you would a card game; always keep an ace tucked in your robe and conceal a dagger dipped in poison in your boot.” The prank-playing princess has to mature fast as her father’s ancient enemy strips her castle comforts away. Sorcery and mystic weapons aid Evlyn’s revenge. But first she must fight to unravel the mystery of the destroyer and her parent’s secrets. Events unfold as the gods play a strange game of cards using their pawns to wrap up their past mistakes. Torundor, a misshapen blend of owl and hawk, becomes her greatest asset while Culivan, a Lemara fruit-loving tree turtle, teaches her true love in a world overrun by powerful giant insects.
