“You are destined for great things, child. Doom is a great thing.”
Aithne is a sweet and adventurous free spirited girl, but she’s also a noble princess of the Megorian regime. Her and her twin sister, Katherine are as thick as thieves, though with often contrasting personalities and beliefs, they would die for each other.
The century long war against magic has finally ended, though the magic-borne continue to be persecuted, there’s finally peace across the continent of Bermiizhe. The ancient prophecy about ‘The Curse’ is known only to a few who have long forgotten its existence. Minds have become comforted with the facade of peace the people now thrive under, but their blanket of comfort is about to be ripped in the middle.
The fire has begun to rage and rumble underneath Aithne's skin. It's begging to be unleashed. Like a volcano on the brink of eruption, it bubbles underneath her skin and goes unseen. But Aithne is a gentle soul, though rebellious with a knack for breaking rules, the princess is adored by all. This treacherous evil couldn't possibly exist within her.
But the evil exists. ‘The Curse’ has finally begun to manifest, and the kingdom of Megor is at the brink of a civil war. It's almost naming day, and the next ruler of the West lies between the princesses and their uncle who's the rightful heir to the throne according to the laws of the land.
The King is at an even greater war with himself. His decision could be the start of a revolution but he has to make the right decision even if it kills him.
Betrayals and treachery, mixed right in the middle of a far greater evil continue to lurk within the walls of the palace, and the fate of the world rests unknowingly on Aithne's shoulders. But the evil isn't planning on staying hidden. It's brewing, bubbling, waiting to erupt.
The Circle of Five are planning something sinister. The evil brewing within the walls of the Western Megorian palace must be stopped before it grows big enough to swallow them all, and they would do anything to stop it. Or rather, to stop her.
