The War is Over. An alliance formed out of necessity doesn’t erase the fact Isolans cost thousands of Azlaan lives. When warrior Kael of Azur is assigned to protect one as punishment, he learns that there is always more to the story and enemies turned allies have much to offer.
Conflict Isn’t. Her family’s village destroyed in an Azlaan attack, Livia Daru has little reason to trust Azlaans, even if their blood does run through her veins. But duty calls and she is asked to protect not one but two of their elite even as the secrets she holds could cost her her life for doing so.
Penance or Karma? In a post-war universe where nothing is what it seems and everyone wears masks, the two are forced to put aside prejudice or risk plunging their species back into war.
