A Dreaded Ceremony. A Twist of Fate. A Death Sentence.
The world outside Lore is bleak. Desolate. Dangerous. Scavenging in the borderlands to stay alive is all Arabella's lowly Relic class family has ever known. It's a miserable existence, but as long as she has her true love, Asher, by her side, she can do whatever it takes for them to survive.
But everything changes when the Queen of Lore dies during the annual Transfer of Life ceremony, mysteriously bestowing her immense power on Arabella instead of the rightful heir.
Now, falsely accused of treason, Arabella is set to be executed by the High Council for a royal murder she never committed. All while outside the castle walls, Lore descends into chaos.
Violent uprising looms on the horizon unless Arabella can prove her innocence and harness the incredible royal power now coursing through her veins…
Even if it means losing everyone she's ever loved.
