About the Author
Conspiracy. Magic. Courage.
Yarrow wants from life is to stay the course. Her military career
fulfills her childhood dreams and affords her a freedom royalty never
did. Yarrow doesn't need anything more than the steadfast friendship of
her Major, Caelum, and her Chief Medical Officer Jules.
Goddesses have other plans, however. They set in motion events that
threaten the bellica with madness and despair. Constancy has been
Yarrow's standby, but betrayals on every side push her further into
chaos. She watches the puppet-Empress, her aunt, destroy the country,
and dreads the day Zardria, her power-hungry twin sister, takes the
Sceptre and rules openly.
Should Bellica Yarrow keep her military oath, or topple her sister's cruel regime? Can she?
choice is nearly impossible. The longer she equivocates, the more she
risks the lives of everyone she holds dear. Meanwhile, Zardria has her
own idea of how events should unfold – and what Yarrow doesn't know
could cost the bellica her life.
