He had endeavoured to restore his place as a prince at the behest of his mentor, but the gods had other plans.
Carlof Crowbeak had once thought himself a child of criminals. Raised an exile on the isle of Tress, surrounded by the mystical Langwyth, he had never questioned his heritage. As Tress and the rest of Erosil fell into carnage, the truth appeared: Carlof was the missing firstborn son of King Ranulf of Estron, a kingdom he had been raised in fear of.
Carlof, a valiant warrior, has pledged to help his cousin, Prince Wymarc, in his quest to win the war against his half-brother, Willhelm. However, Carlof is oblivious to the fact that he is being closely monitored by a woman who was once presumed dead. This mysterious figure holds secrets about Carlof's past and future that could be detrimental to his mission.
She is known to be one of the most dangerous women in Erosil, and her presence is a cause for concern. She possesses vital information about the reason behind the war and the events that led to Carlof's strange upbringing. Carlof's fate hangs in the balance as he becomes entangled in a web of secrets and lies.
Despite the risks, Carlof is determined to continue his mission and support his cousin in the war. However, he must navigate the treacherous world of politics and warfare while also trying to uncover the truth about his past and the woman who seems to hold all the answers.
