I am Meredith, princess of faerie, and at long last, I am with child-twins, fathered by my royal guard. Now I must stay alive to see my children born, as conspirators from every court plot against me and mine. They seek to strip my guards, my lovers, from me by poisoned word or cold steel. But I still have supporters, and even friends, among the goblins and the sluagh who will stand by me. Those who would defy and destroy me are destined to pay a terrible price. To protect what is mine, I will sacrifice anything-even if it means waging a battle against my darkest enemies and making the most momentous decision ever made as princess of faerie.
