When the one you love betrays you, who can you trust?
Protected by a holy warrior and pursued by bounty hunters and the emperor’s assassins, Kia is hiding a secret the emperor can never find out—she is carrying his grandchild. After giving birth, Kia has to leave her daughter and resume her duties as a member of Prince Rial’s personal guard.
Discovering Rial has betrayed her shatters her trust in him, but when a rebel force attacks the emperor’s fleet, Kia must put aside her personal feelings and stand by Rial’s side as he aids his father.
During the battle, she seizes an opportunity to free herself, and the galaxy, from the emperor’s tyranny. Is this one throw of the dice a mad gamble that will result in her death, or can she—against all odds—achieve the ultimate success?
