AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For as long as she can remember, Camea has longed to explore the world beyond the island kingdom of Adar. It is an impossible dream, especially if she follows tradition and marries the farmer her parents have selected for her. But then, Camea has never been one to follow expectations. When the village witch announces she has been selected to be the Fire God's next bride, Camea has no intention of sacrificing her life to appease the volcano. She plans to escape and follow the Stars to her dream.

'Matai, once a prince of Adar, now pays a fiery penance for seducing one of the Fire God's witches. He must take a new bride each year, then kill her–or condemn Adar to the lava. Unlike his past brides Camea doesn't shed one tear for her fate, nor does she beg for her life.

'In the face of death she sees the remnants of the man he used to be–and a way to save them both from the Fire God's never-ending cycle of wrath. If Matai has the courage to trust his heart.'
