Caledon Holt is the kingdom’s deadliest weapon as well as the Queen’s Assassin, bound to her by magic and unable to leave her service. Shadow of the Honey Glade has been training all her life to join the Guild, hoping that one day she’ll become an assassin as feared and revered as Cal. When a surprise attack brings Shadow and Cal together, they’re forced to team up as assassin and apprentice. Even though Shadow’s life belongs to the court and Cal’s to the queen, they cannot deny their attraction. But now, with war on the horizon, Shadow and Cal will uncover a shocking web of lies that will change their paths forever.
