Politics is never simple when it comes to dragons. Neither is romance.
My biological father anointed himself dragon king. Now that he found me, the cunning despot plans to groom me to expand his holdings before appointing me his heir.
I’ll never accept the dragon king’s paper throne—but it’s within my power to answer for his sins and restore the magic he stole from others.
My older half-brother wants me dead, his lover wants my blood for its life-extending properties, and they both want me to reveal the identity of the dragon king’s missing child.
I can handle Casimir and Elodie, and keep my mouth shut. What I can’t handle is any more lies, not from my adoptive parents, and not from the enchantress who saved my life. Audrey and Elijah mean the world to me. And Striža? I feel like I’ve known her forever.
Navigating the maze of blood relations, underground tunnels, and deadly secrets will test my skills—if the madness coursing through my family tree doesn’t take me down first.
