About the Book
The world of Corenthions holds mysteries of an enchanted indigo planet bursting with ancient religions and cultures. A hierarchy of magical beings rule Corenthions with the Emperor a Warlock, and Empress, and a Sorceress holding the continents in place with their energies and strong religion of The Night.
Casandra De Volt, their daughter, has graduated from the University Academy. On her carriage ride home to the North Castle, she and her companions are pulled from the sky by powerful wizard Prince Devon Bertrand. They disguise themselves and cover their magic to not be discovered. After their release, the Emperor forces Casandra into a marriage to an old friend, Count Henry Rakie. However, they are unaware Henry was poisoned by Devon’s Father, the King of Hex. The antidote to Henry’s poison is being withheld until he can bring Casandra as his bride. In Henry’s curiosity and understanding of the wicked King Hex’s interest in Casandra, Henry falls in love with the beautiful, spirited, and powerful young sorceress. The mystery and magic that unfolds illuminates the intricate balance of dark and light magic, as well as the deep pull of male to female
