A powerful curse was cast upon Edinretha by the last words of a dying witch:
"From this day on; no female will be born in Edinretha. The ones alive shall die, and you will have no Paragon blood to shed at the door of Abyss. Your kind will never get the Crown of Fire and will never have dominion on the lands above and beyond."
Eva's simple life in her tribe changed when she was abducted and sold as a tribute to the Kingdom of Edinretha - the only kingdom on Manavia Prime that suffered a scarcity of the female population.
Alone, far from home, Eva woke up in the dark woods, only to find that she is being tested to compete to become the Queen of Edinretha, the fearsome King Tau's mate, and give birth to a Paragon, a girl child that possesses magical abilities. She never wanted to fall in love with the man who had her taken away from her home, but slowly Eva finds herself drowning in the enigmatic and brooding King.
Despite all his pride and self-restraint, Tau is drawn towards the haughty woman who questions everything Edinretha stands upon.
What Eva doesn't know is the game of power being played to secure the Crown of Fire that belongs to Whiro, the Dark One.
In this tale of curse, prophecy, and bloodshed, Eva and Tau fall deeply in love with each other but fate has other plans when Eva finds the truth about her origin.
