Enjoy an exclusive excerpt:
“What is it, Lady Aradel?” one girl asked.
“Kirill?” she called, having completely forgotten their fun.
“Yes Lady Aradel?” he mocked with a snide grin on his face. But then he followed her gaze.
“Who are they?” she asked, trying to tuck the children completely behind her.
“Outlanders,” he said, as the people drew closer. “Take the children back,” he commanded.
She ignored him, wondering why so many of them were coming this way. Kirill stepped out into the road, drawing their attention. They looked beaten and battered, exhausted to their very bones.
Aradel’s eyebrows rose in surprise. She turned towards the children. “Come along,” she said, hurrying them in a row down the road towards the palace. Thank the stars they weren’t far from the castle.
“What is your business here?” she heard Kirill ask behind her, his commander-of-the-guard voice kicking in.
Aradel looked over her shoulder at them. Kirill was blocking the strangers’ way. Her eyes scanned their faces. She gasped in shock and horror as her gaze fell on one. She turned and pushed past Kirill. The crowd parted for her, the people recognizing that her necklace marked her as a member of the elite, those few chosen as possible successors to Queen Vesna.
She reached the second layer of the crowd and stopped before an old woman. When the woman lifted her head, Aradel could barely manage to keep herself from gasping again at her face. Her entire cheek was covered in fractured skin. It looked like ice after someone stomped on it and cracked it.
Aradel reached out and touched the woman’s face, letting her powers fill the woman. The fractured skin mended, but it was likely that she would have that faded blue mark for the rest of her life. Once it got into the skin, nothing could make it vanish.
“What happened?” Aradel whispered, and the old woman’s eyes filled with tears.
“The spring,” she said, her voice heavy with emotion. “The spring came early.”
