I was marked at birth.
Chosen by fate, queen without choice.
The Goddess thinks I'm ready, but I'm not so sure.
I was born to be queen. Hidden from the world and trained to rule. Protected until I can offer myself to the Maiden Goddess and the consort she chooses for me.
But when I'm called to the capital for my coronation, it's not one stranger chosen for me, it's five.
Enemies are circling outside my borders and within my court, and I can't trust anyone—not even the men I'm destined to love.
In order to wear my crown I must survive the intrigues of a corrupted court, and win the heart of a divided people. Because without a Queen, the land will die, and I can only pray that I am not too late.
