Synopsis:  Young Princess Nefasti wakes to discover her father, the King, poisoned and her mother near death. As she is the sole heiress to the ancient high kingdom of Vadio, the king’s three brothers begin to plot and quarrel over who will become Regent and control the kingdom until she comes of age, or dies. Their solution is to marry her off. If this trio were not enough of a problem, the greedy surrounding kingdoms all want to gobble Vadio up, and their ambassadors scurry through the castle plotting and scheming.
Princess Nefasti has two main goals: to survive, and to discover who is responsible for the death of her parents.

Prologue from The Dark Lady:

“The Kingdom of Vadio is an illusion, a decaying corpse of a once-mighty colossus that ruled the known world for thousands of years. But that glory now lies more than three hundred years in the past, after the Great Sundering. Clinging to its fortress valley in the mountains of the Dragon’s Teeth, Vadio exists only as the crossroads of the rich trade between the three covetous empires gnawing the tired bones like hungry jackals devouring a dying lion. Once these lands swore undying fealty to the High Kingdom, now they circle it, warily eyeing each other, waiting for the opportunity to tear at the faintly-beating heart of the world, or each other’s throat.

But I had a dream, on the first night of this year three thousand five hundred and seven after the Founding. Something is about to stir in the Valley of the Eye; something spawned of Meridiem. There is blood on the Dragon’s Teeth. You sneer that this is not new, but I warn you, Lord, that coin is not pure. You are not from this place.”–Blind Eride, beggar and philosopher, overheard in the marketplace, just before his untimely death.
