This is Book Two of the Altethlon Chronicles trilogy. Nikolas is a warrior and military leader hardened by the trials of his time. Having led countless battles against the Dark Followers, he is popularly recognized as a hero in the Altethlon Federation he serves. He is often called upon by the Queen to fulfill dangerous missions. He has never failed her. This winter he is summoned again, only this time he is wanted for his body - to help produce an heir to the throne. The problem: He is deeply in love with Ximia, a princess warrior of the Ubion Kingdom, whom he has promised to see this winter and when he does, he plans to propose marriage. Determined to tell the Queen about his true love, he sets out to the Palace of Eternal Light, where Queen Isolda, the highest ruler of the Altethlon Federation, resides. When he arrives at the Palace, what awaits him is nothing like he expected. The revelation of a long-held secret shatters his very faith in the regime he serves. But despite all his doubts and qualms, he has to answer his call of duty. As events unfold, to be put to trial are only his combat skills and his strength, but also his heart and his soul – even his humor, for he finds the only help in an odd character with queer ways. As his enemy shifts its face and grows exponentially in power, he is running short of time and out of options. . . .
