“Here’s where I’m at: I’ll always love Brig. There’s never going to be any way around that. Ever. I try not to think about it too much – dwelling on it will re-open the wound, and I can’t – I won’t – revisit that old pain. It’s enough to know that I’ll always love him, and let him go.”
As Aydan Fulbert settles into life in a new world, she realizes a few things: She’s healing from losing her best friend, her first love. She’s coming to terms with her new home.
And she’s lonely.
Rein Torvald’s return from his long absence helps alleviate her loneliness, but a darkness comes with him. Unsettling news about her father and the Sovereign has the potential to make her a fugitive all over again – from his world and hers.
Will Aydan allow her heart to be taken places she’s never been brave enough to go? Or will the threat of danger – of the Sovereign’s rage, and her father’s vengeful grudge – send her running?
