In the final moments of The Gypsy King , a truth was revealed to Persephone and Azriel—one that could change everything forever. For her. For him. For them. For the entire kingdom.


But the Regent Mordecai has them trapped and he wants them dead so that the truth will die with them. He is a heartbeat from seeing it done when Azriel boldly bargains: release them and they will seek Genezing. Mordecai agrees but warns that if they do not return with proof that the pool exists, he'll make those dearest to them suffer—and he'll start with King Finnius.


Persephone has never needed Azriel's teasing warmth more, but she is finding out there is a price to pay for having broken past promises. Together, they set off on a journey that will take them to the farthest corners of the kingdom. Danger will ever lie ahead and behind them; they will battle men and beasts alike. Will Persephone and Azriel survive these perils? And will this quest see their romance grow cold—or will it burn hotter than ever?
