There comes a kingdom…
All great buildings have names, it is usually no different with the seat of a kingdom. Palace Athandraul has been the residence of the Kings of Utonica for at least a hundred years. Prior to that there had been a great stone castle, tumbled down by war and weather and used now as the foundation for the present one.
Aleyne learns that sometimes a person’s duty is to step in where others can no longer go, and sometimes her duty is to go where no one has ever been.
In the third book of the Ethaia series Aleyne finds herself following the path set by her parents on the day they died. With her new responsibilities she takes on some old ones to remove the threat of bandits on the pass that connects the east from the west, and to remove the strangle hold it has upon the the people, her people, the people of Utonica.
