Tired of her boring life and dull existence on the small island of Seamount, Jesstea, beautiful, young daughter of Blue Glory sneaks from her mother’s court and runs to the royal court of her grandmother, Queen Evica.
In this third earth-shattering book of the Seamount series. Princess Jess is sure she can make peace between her mother and grandmother. Besides she feels trapped on Seamount and longs for the glitter and excitement of a sophisticated court. She expects to find handsome, gallant young officers and women who will be true friends. She dreams of the beauty of the music, the sight and splendor of the fabulous gowns and the excitement of the grand balls. Maybe she will find love.
What she finds is treachery, slavery, and drug addiction.
And the Old One.
For the last three hundred years the Old Ones have been the hidden players in the wars and politics of the continent of Morrana. Once this particular Old One, riding in his chosen host, Evica, almost killed Glory. Glory’s friend, Jerix, came to the rescue.
Now Evica is using Jess to bait a trap to finely kill Glory. This time Evica will chose the place of battle, and she will be the one with allies.
But what they catch in their trap is an old friend of Jerix--a very old and very powerful friend. This friend, Red Devlin has, over the years, learned to hide his magic. He wants to be left alone. He is tired of using magic to kill people. And the red gloves he wears are his reminder of the blood he has shed.
He has learned to control magic at will--but not young women.
The book, Red Devlin, is the fast moving sequel to Blue Glory, and The Queen in Silver and Black.
