Betrayal. Divided loyalties. War. One story. Two sides. And a bond that might break their world apart.

Diamond Gillon dreams of a life beyond the confines of the small farming town where she has grown up. She has suffered years of torment because of her mixed fae and human heritage. But for reasons he won’t fully explain, her father refuses to let her leave.

When her home is attacked, her only escape is with a band of warriors led by an arrogant human prince, and a dangerous fae warrior.

Far from all she knows, Diamond discovers that the fae world is a cruel and terrifying place, her dream of leaving soon turning into a nightmare. One where the magic she hides is condemned and means certain death.

The ruthless, yet devastatingly handsome fae warrior confuses her with his kind gestures, yet harsh words. When he does the unthinkable and defies his queen to save Diamond, both of their lives are changed forever. His actions create a forbidden bond, one that should never exist. But Hugo Casimir’s life belongs to the fae queen. There is no escape; for either of them.

Drawn deeper into Hugo’s life, danger lurks at every turn.

Will Hugo betray all he has ever known for their forbidden bond, or will he serve his queen and become the biggest threat Diamond has ever faced?
