"Two star- crossed lovers’ running away together off into the distance. Fighting against all odds, living a life of poverty, but knowing that love conquers all...until it doesn’t. Then you wake up with a jolt, and realize real life isn’t a fairy tale.”
Gwen has been working for the High King and his family since she was ten. The catch? The High King is her grandfather… and everyone in castle knows it. She and her twin Caleb were a mistake- the only proof that anyone defied the High King’s plans, and lived to tell about it. Unfortunately, Gwen is also proof of a much larger mistake than that.
Gwen has the Gift of Kings, a special magic passed down to the heir of the kingdom. She should be next in line for the throne, but instead she is forced to watch helplessly as her entire family bends under her grandfather’s power. But when her half-sister discovers the truth about Gwen’s gift, Gwen is suddenly forced into the spotlight. She is the only one with the power to stop her grandfather, but in order to end his tyrannical reign, she will have to risk everything. All the odds are stacked against her, and Gwen is running out of options. To save the people she loves, Gwen must learn to rely on herself.
