What if Rayla didn't go on the assassination mission? What if Callum tries to take a baby Zym all the way to Xadia? What if Rayla stays undercover in Katolis?
Rayla Moonshadow was an illegal resident in the city of Katolis, not to mention assassin, to keep her mentor, Runaan safe after he contracted a mystery illness. After the brutal murder of King Harrow and Prince Ezran, High Mage Viren rules the human kingdoms. Step-prince Callum is nowhere to be found. When Rayla finds the injured prince in her home with precious cargo tucked underneath his arm, Rayla has to take them under her wing if there was ever a chance to preserve the peace. Sunfire elves are growing hungry for blood, and a grieving queen does the same. The only hope that they can stop the impending war is the young dragon prince that Callum tried to get to Xadia, failing. If they can get him back by the end of the summer solstice, war could be prevented, as well as the deaths of thousands of elves and humans alike.

It’s not Callum’s fault, either.

Sure, the new client did look familiar.
But what they weren't sure about was how someone completely, utterly, dead could be alive.
