The barbarian Rexhall strives to stake his claim as the new ruler of the Kingdom of Rothesia and restore his people from banishment. His quest sweeps up Raelyn, a warrior with a mysterious past, when her adoptive father is brutally killed in front of her by servants of the usurper. She is forced to race toward the castle of the king, desperate to warn him of the treachery. Schemes, deceit, and violence explode across the kingdom, with slavery and tyranny threatening to swallow decades of peace. Now only Raelyn and Prince Arryn, whose dark secret could destroy the kingdom even without Rexhall, are in a position to untangle barbarian plans born of decades of hatred.
This book is the first novel in The Legacy Series and directly follows the events of Warrior’s Ascension, the prequel novella.
