With the death of her malevolent uncle King Clodovec, Averil is the queen of the Kingdom of Lys. However, even though Clodovec is dead, the former exiled duchess Averil knows her people remain in danger from her evil late relative's machinations to bring forth the Serpent God of Chaos. Clodovec's soulless armies led by unknown sorcerers who her uncle obeyed still plunder the land killing anyone in their path. From official release/information:
From back of book: Averil, once hunted across the land and sea by her uncle the king, is now the Queen of Lys. But if she cannot defy and defeat her late uncle's sorcerous masters, she will never live to be crowned.
