Kieran,a blacksmith, will have to decide if he will continue to live his safe life, or become the king he was meant to be in order to save his kingdom. If he chooses to be king, he may have to give up his quest to find the one woman with whom he shares a heart connection.
Kieran’s blood boils every time he hears about the abuse handed down by Teleria’s nobility. But years of hiding in his father’s smithy have taught him to avoid trouble. Content with being a blacksmith, the only disruptions in his well-ordered life are his disturbing dreams. It isn’t until his twentieth birthday, when he receives a mysterious letter and sword from King Arathor – the man who claims to be his real father – that he wonders if his dreams have become reality. If he believes Arathor, he will have a chance to end a twenty-year curse over Teleria, and free the people from King Rahnak’s oppression. But it could also mean giving up his quest to find the mysterious woman with whom he shares an intimate heart connection.
Jessa, a newly-freed slave, must decide if she will trust the man she rescued, and choose to leave her obscure life to become the queen she was meant to be.
“How ironic, cousin. All these years and they never told you who you really are.”
“You now have a choice, and it will take great courage to choose the right. From this moment on, you will be walking the path between who you are now and who you were born to be. All I’m asking you to do is to let yourself make the journey. ~Arathor”
