New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer expands the Cursebreaker world in an electrifying new series.
All's fair in love, war . . . and magic.
When Tycho, the King's Courier, arrives in the remote village of Briarlock, he wants only to escape the demands of his new life in the royal court, where magic reigns for the first time in ages. The last thing he expects is to fall for a handsome blacksmith with a bruised heart.
After years of toil under his father's cruel hand, Jax never dared to dream of a better life. When rumors of a rebellion reach their small forge, he begins to wonder if he'll even survive--until a magic-wielding young lord offers him an enticing escape.
Jax's best friend, Callyn, doesn't trust this mysterious new friend. Magic once killed her parents, and she would do anything to protect Jax. But when another powerful man arrives from the capital, seeking her help, Callyn will be forced to question everything she thought she knew about magic--and herself.
War is brewing. Love is blooming. And magic may doom--or save--them all . . .
