Taradil’s life is about to change, and she doesn’t like it.
Six hundred years ago, humans conquered Veridac, the ancestral home of the elves. In the process, the evil human king and his descendants were cursed.
Malvad, the new human king of Veridac, extended an offer of treaty with the neighboring kingdom of Gaul. As part of the treaty, he requested a Gaulian elf as a bride in hopes of breaking the curse once and for all. The elven council chose the unlikely Taradil to become his bride.
Now Taradil, who would much prefer to drink until she passes out at her favorite tavern, must travel to Veridac. Her best friend, Prince Aleric of Gaul, will accompany her on the journey to negotiate the first peace treaty in over six hundred years between their kingdoms.
The past that she buried long ago threatens to consume her. Can she face the demons that haunt her, or will Taradil give in to the hatred of the past and destroy this chance for peace?
