Mariah spent the first nineteen years of her life at her father’s side, working tirelessly in his smithy, hiding her wings and her true nature from the world. It wasn’t an ideal life, but it was hers.
In a single afternoon, everything came crashing down around her. In the flash of a single moment, she lost everything and was driven from her home.
Years have passed, and Mariah has learned to live alone, to survive, far away from judging eyes and her home kingdom, the kingdom that would sooner see her locked in chains than free and happy.
But once again, her life is turned upside down when Xae, a young refugee shifter, comes flying in, asking anyone who will listen for help. Mariah’s mentor pushes her to aid him, hinting that the young woman is meant for greater things. Xae’s little sisters have been captured, and Mariah may be the only one who can save them.
To succeed, she must return to her homeland and venture all the way to the seat of the king’s power. Despite help from the friends Mariah and Xae make along the way, abandoning her own freedom may be the only way she can deliver the two little girls from a life of servitude and torture.
Will their daring plan to free Xae’s family work, or will Mariah end up bound by the shackles she’s spent her whole life trying to avoid?
