In the tradition of Mercedes Lackey and Elizabeth Haydon comes a riveting fantasy debut about an unlikely deposed prince who must reclaim his kingdom with the help of a disgraced prince, a female wizard, and a powerful magic-breaker.
When his uncle murders his family to take the throne, Prince Kattanan DuRhys is the only royal left alive. . . at a terrible cost. Stripped of his manhood, Kattanan travels as a court singer from one wealthy patron to the next. Given as a courtship gift to the young Princess Melisande, Kattanan feels the stirring of emotions he thought were denied him. But her jealous fiancée has other plans–and the sinister magic to carry them out.
Must Kattanan sacrifice his song to win his kingdom, and the woman he loves?
