On opposite sides of the Seven Kingdoms, Davian, a talented sculptor, and the princess Avelessa weave their separate tales of loss. Avelessa’s father, King Perivale, has fallen prey to the evil power of the throne. In a rage he causes the death of her first love, scars her ravishing face, and confines her to her room with only her music as solace. Meanwhile, Davian loses his heart to a fortune-seeking barmaid, thereafter relinquishing all but his art. When the paths of Davian and Avelessa finally cross, they can’t imagine what perilous choices are in store for them — or the redemption that will follow.
