'The prince is dead.

'Fooled by the treacherous King Aidan, Fallon has shot down the one man he trusted to save his beloved nation of Gaelland. And yet, when the King could grind Fallon underfoot, he draws the simple farmer and fighter closer, making a hero of him.

'Embroiled in plots beyond his comprehension and weighted with the guilt of the prince's murder, Fallon must tread carefully if he is to accomplish the task that first brought him to the cursed capital: rescue his wife, Bridgit, and the rest of his village from Kottermani slavery. If he and his hopelessly ensnared men can survive, they may yet find redemption.

'Meanwhile, across the ocean, Bridgit is rallying those around her to spring an escape. But who can be trusted? The ever-present danger of traitors and liars among the slaves, and even among her fellow Gaelish, is poison to her plans.

'With an ocean between them and fouler nightmares looming, Fallon and Bridgit will be driven to their very limits to escape their prisons, find each other, and bring justice to Gaelland.'

'One step forward ...

'Taking their lives in her hands, Bridgit manages to get her people out of slavery. But with an ocean to cover, no maps and little food, it seems escaping was the easy part.

'Across the ocean, Fallon has decided to do anything to get his wife back – including capturing and torturing the Kottermani Crown Prince Kemal.

'But, just as he thinks he has discovered King Aidan's master plan, his discoveries lead him into the depths of the castle.

'What he discovers there will change everything ...'

'The tides have turned.

'Fallon finds himself ruler of Gaelland – or at least, of Berry – and Prince Kemal has been dispatched back to Kotterman to free Bridgit. With the Duchess Dina as his enthusiastic ally, Fallon sets about trying to make Prince Cavan's dream of a fair, peaceful society come true.

'What Fallon does not know is that Prince Kemal cannot free people who have already escaped. On the open ocean, Bridgit is already searching for Gaelland, but finding dry land is not her only concern. Little does she know, some of the people aboard their ship want her dead.

'Meanwhile, in the east, Prince Swane has other ideas about who should be ruling Gaelland ...'

'The thanks of a grateful nation can be fleeting.

'Fallon's wife and the families of his men have returned safely to Gaelland, but it seems their problems are far from at an end.

'Prince Swane has the eastern reaches of Gaelland under his control, Prince Kemal is itching for revenge, and Fallon's erstwhile ally, Duchess Dina, is now under arrest. If the city is to avoid descending into chaos and slaughter, the people desperately need food and weapons.

'With Prince Kemal's army bearing down on Gaelland, Fallon is about to find out if the men he has trained are equal to the Kotterman Empire's finest ...'
