The shocking conclusion to the Moonfire Trilogy.
Lana han Chevonian is one of the world’s brightest minds on the brink of making a huge discovery. There is only one problem: she is stuck as prisoner in the harem of the Aranian king. She could try to escape and run the risk of getting re-captured or getting killed on the very long and difficult road back home to Chevakia, or she could win the favour of the king, beg to be allowed to use the famed library and promise Arania credit for her work.
Meanwhile, war is about to break out between Aranian armies with icefire weapons and Chevakian armies wanting to wipe those weapons off the face of the earth.

Selwa grabbed her upper arm. “Look at me.”
“Whatever you’re taking, stop it. It’s not worth it.
”But . . . Lana’s eyes pricked with tears.
“I didn’t ask to have Sferuk, or Nayek or any of the others. I definitely didn’t ask for this last cursed child that almost killed me. The king decides that you will have a child. You give him the child. Rest assured, he only asks when he needs it.”
