But she is still young, still open to influence – and corruption.
Whoever controls the Queen controls the Darkness. Three men- sworn enemies- know this. And they know the power that hides behind the blue eyes if an innocent girl.

Some refuse to believe. And still others look forward to using her, making her a pawn in their shadowy devices.
Only time and the love of her guardians have healed Jaenelle’s physical wounds. But her mind is still fragile, barely able to protect her from the terrible memories of her childhoos.
