In conversation with Helen Corcoran

Age 15+

Lia is the newly crowned teenage queen of Edar, having inherited the mantle from her corrupt uncle. With no one to trust, she decides to hire a spymaster – but Xania, tasked with being Lia’s new confidante, has her own agenda. Despite the treason, murderous plots and secrecy, a bond begins to grow between Lia and Xania which may be more than that of a queen and her spy. Soon, they may find themselves faced with an impossible choice.
