Only her personal bodyguard, Hans, remains loyal. Hans claims to know the real Ava but she finds that hard to believe—after all, she's been the villain so long that she can't remember anything else.
Deep in exile, Ava learns her kingdom needs a hero and she might be the only one who can save it. The catch? She'll have to ally herself with the very people she blames for her downfall.
But in a game of life and death where the stakes are an entire kingdom, winning over her enemies will only be the beginning. Can one fugitive save her people, her kingdom and, hardest of all, herself?
