"When you find what you don't deserve...."
The decadent Staede of Throm has been in every Adrsta Chronicle. The beloved rogue who lives a life of decadence, with women in abundance and no moral code.
He has been searching for a cure for his immortality curse for years, clinging to the vision of the Sorceress who will one day set him free.
When he finds her – she is no ordinary Sorceress but a powerful being of magic and the current reigning Queen of Serenay, the planet of prohibited creatures of magic.
Embroiled in her own political nightmare of uniting a planet of renegade magical beings, she enlists the help of Wrexel's Thromian military to travel among her people and unite them under one government. Wrexel owes her a debt and sends his finest, but Staede hijacks his plans and instates himself as the leader of the mission intending to force the Sorceress to uplift his curse.
He joins her diplomatic mission through the states of Serenay.
He protects her from assassins and other deviant political leaders who want to take her place.
He teaches her what her magical powers cannot: How to rule, how to persuade followers and how to be a real Queen.
She in turn teaches him about true love.
ON A UNIVERSAL NOTE: Serenay is the last and most important planet needed to join the Federated Eight in their fight against the 104 who continue to band together in larger contingents.
The Wall of Perdition is about to fall and the Drymm will soon be free. Their plan to take over Diogel and destroy the Yimmyrd in entirety is at hand.
