Dark times are upon the land of

Nereth. Centuries have passed since the rightful heir to the throne was

banished. The people are losing hope in ancient legend, which foretells of one

who will rise up, overthrow the evil king and queen, and restore peace. Like

all others in Nereth, Edlyn has suffered greatly. Orphaned as a child, Edlyn

grew up as the serf of a drunken lord. Now a spirited seventeen-year-old, Edlyn

works to buy her freedom while fighting off the unwanted advances of Sheriff

Hurst. One morning, Edlyn discovers a young man hiding in the stable. He is

fleeing from Sheriff Hurst and inflicted with a sword wound that will surely be

fatal without her help. In a split-second decision, Edlyn conceals the young

man from Sheriff Hurst and begins nursing him back to health. As the young

man’s strength returns, Edlyn learns that his name is Maddock, and she is

stunned to find that he has come from the mysterious land to the north. Maddock

soon comes to Edlyn’s aid, rescuing her from Sheriff Hurst. Suddenly declared

outlaws, both Edlyn and Maddock must escape for their lives to enchanted

Ravenshire Forest and then the desolate mountains beyond. As their adventure

unfolds, Edlyn and Maddock discover that their meeting may have been more than

chance, for their lives prove bound by a fate that neither of them could

possibly have imagined.

Snippet:

 

“So it is true that Sheriff Hurst

really wanted to make you his bride?” Peyton eventually inquired.

            “Sheriff

Hurst is a horrible, selfish man.”

            “He

is rich, and he has good connections.”

            “Are

you suggesting that nothing else should matter?” Edlyn challenged.

“Why should money and importance be all that a woman aspires to in a

marriage? Can a woman not want love and happiness? Or respect?”

            Peyton

shot her a sideways glance. “You think that pining after a wanderer who is

on a secret journey—and nearly being brought upon your deathbed because of

him—is happiness?”

 

            Edlyn

turned away. “I am pining after no one.”
