Solana Amell is no hero, of Ferelden or otherwise. Alistair ended the Blight. Alistair died. She ran.

For ten years after Alistair’s death, she traveled. She commanded no Wardens, she fought no wars. She kept to herself and tried to forget. Then the sky split open.

The Thedas she discovers when she finally comes down from the mountains is entirely different. Only the Inquisition is trying to set things to rights, and the head of its army is her old Circle crush, Cullen.

Is it possible for a mage and a Templar to live happily ever after?

While Cullen struggles with his addiction and the traumas in his past, Solana has to discover who she truly is. And she might not like the answer.

But true love is more than moonlight kisses and desperate vows. It may just be powerful enough to heal two broken people.


This series is set during Inquisition. It does however touch on events that happened (or might have happened) in all three Dragon Age games and reference a couple of facts revealed in the books, so spoiler alert!

This is not a game retelling. Some of the missions will be from the games but I hope to offer unique perspective for those. Mostly I leave the game heroics to the dashing Inquisitor.

The main point of departure from canon is that the Hero was not involved in the events of Awakenings, which means she shows up on the Inquisition's doorstep. Her presence alters some key events.

General warnings: THERE IS A LOT OF ANGST *Ahem* I mean teen rating so nothing overly graphic, but there are general sexy times, violence and a bit of swearing.

Other content warnings will be provided in the notes of individual chapters. If you identify something that I didn't warn about but I *should* have, I am more than happy to edit. Just let me know your suggestions.
