Introducing the princess, and the mage.
He doesn’t do well with people.
She's not so good at tact.
But he’s the wizard guardian of half a continent,
She rules a kingdom she must protect.
And to survive the inroads of a marauding empire,
The wild, harsh, fickle, fragile, beautiful desert of Hethria needs them both.
She knows tactics. He understands reality.
They both love Hethria.
But what if, to keep the thing you love
You have to change yourself?
Some wars you just can't win alone.
The third book in the Chronicles of Rihannar, sequel to Everran’s Bane and The Moving Water, already on Smashwords
