A beautiful and mischievous faery assassin turns a dangerous journey into a deadly game of broken hearts and broken lives.
When Prince Raigon collects a group of faithful allies to help him transport the immortal chalice to Bellaire, he doesn’t expect that group to include Sepia, the seductive faery assassin who jilted him years ago. At first, it seems the easier choice than letting her kill the chalice’s bearer and steal the treasure. The further down the road they travel, the more he questions his decision.
Sepia seems bent on tormenting Raigon and his associates. It’s an easy task with Raigon, as his broken heart grows more fragile each time she toys with it. She proves to be an indisputable asset when the group encounters their many obstacles, including a sulky ogre, a pack of goblins, a witch and a murderous bishop and his henchman priest. Still, her companions often suspect that she is as responsible for producing their trials as she is for allaying them.
Then Raigon discovers that not only does Sepia appear to be slowly killing the bearer of the chalice, but she also may have found competition for her affections. All he can hope for, in the end, is to get his companions through this journey alive.
