Chosen by truth. Marked for death. Halia must choose to save her kingdom, or let it fall.
Misroth’s king has died, and the entire kingdom is in mourning–or so it seems. After her father is crowned regent in his brother’s stead, Princess Halia discovers a terrible truth that could end her life. But when she flees to live in hiding, she discovers that the Royal Guard are not all she has to fear. Dark creatures stalk her, reports of oppression and war reach her ears, and her burden to protect her kingdom–at any cost–will not be silenced.

Threatened by demons. Haunted by the Queen of Death. To save her kingdom, Halia will lose everything.
The barrier that protected Misroth for two hundred years is broken. While Halia is held captive by the monstrous nestrae, the demons march toward her homeland, threatening to destroy all she has fought to protect. Meanwhile, Gillen, the rightful king of Misroth, is battling for his life…and mind. The Life-Giver seems silent, but Nesrelle, Queen of Death, is not, and her message is clear: death isn’t finished with Halia–or the ones she loves.
Misroth’s only hope lies with its worst enemy: the Alrenian Empire, a bloodthirsty land that is both wicked and alluring, full of deadly games and fierce dragons. But time draws short. Misroth is crumbling into chaos and terror. The throne is empty. And the Queen of Death is waiting.
In this epic final installment of the Silent Kingdom series, readers will delve deeper into a world of tragedy and triumph, dragons and demons, and love and loss.
