We return to the world of the Blood – the world where Queens rule and the Princes honor and protect – or they used to. Now the lands are torn asunder. Dena Nehele is now shattered into pieces of what it once was, and Theran Grayhaven – the last of his line – hopes to return his lands to what they used to be when the Gray Lady ruled – when Blood was honorable and the Old Ways ruled. However, there is a large problem with his vision – no one remembers the Old Ways. The corrupt Queens had eliminated almost all who knew or practiced them. Where would they find a Queen willing to rule their broken land and people?

From official release/information:

Product Description: Dena Nehele is a land decimated by its past. Once it was ruled by corrupt Queens who were wiped out when the land was cleansed of tainted Blood. Now, only one hundred Warlord Princes stand—without a leader and without hope.

Theran Grayhaven is the last of his line, desperate to find the key that reveals a treasure great enough to restore Dena Nehele. But first he needs to find a Queen who remembers the Blood's code of honor and lives by the Old Ways. The woman chosen to rule Dena Nehele, Lady Cassidy, is not beautiful and believes she is not strong. But she may be the only one able to convince bitter men to serve once again.
