Sequel to the Wattpad FEATURED story Philomena.

Two years ago, Tancred, King of Deusetats, made a deal with the Empress of Jovan. Now, the Empress has called in that deal. She wants to annexe the Kingdom of Merot, and she demands Tancred’s assistance.

But Tancred has enemies of his own, and he is no longer so certain of the choices he made two years earlier. If he honours his debt, he might lose his throne; if he reneges, Prince Rainhart’s life will be forfeit. To save Rainhart’s life, he sends Philomena to the Imperial Court of the Jovani Empire with a simple task: to outwit one of the most dangerous men in the world–a man who also happens to be her foster father.

Tancred’s reign began in blood, with the brutal beheading of the regicide Waldon Bartosz. Now, as three armies face off against each other, Tancred and his allies must race against time to prevent it from ending the same way.
