Hundreds of years before mortal Tess O’Connor comes to Queen Mab’s Court, a page and a squire train to become Unseelie Knights, becoming entangled in forbidden romances, Court intrigues, and the events that will ultimately spark the greatest war their world has ever known.
Handsome Finnead has no family name or titles, but his skill with a sword sets him on the path to becoming one of the Queen’s most favored young Knights. Precocious Ramel has a quick wit and starts trouble more often than he should, but he’s convinced that he will become Finnead’s squire and help the young Knight on his way to glory in the Court. Lady Rye wishes she could return to the North to train with the wolf-warriors, but refusal from the Queen to grant her freedom means that she serves as one of the Princess’ ladies. And Princess Andraste desires nothing more than to learn how to fight and defy the expectations of a well-bred lady, much less the heir to the throne.
Follow both beloved and new characters from the acclaimed Fae War Chronicles as they discover their destiny within the Court and within their world as darkness begins to rise and they are forced to choose their sides in a battle that brings to an end the Golden Age of the Unseelie Court.
