Connor Peak is an only child, raised and trained by King Reynard to become his most profitable recruit after the tragic death of his father. Bound by loyalty, Connor is sent once more on a mission, which proves to be his most difficult yet. His target? Rachel Penmouse of the Isles, a wise Queen, just as dedicated to protecting her own people, and to Connor, the sole person responsible for the death of his father.
Connor must now endeavour to avenge his father and make his King proud once more, but not every contract is as simple as described, not every detail as clear. Will Connor succeed and be the catalyst for war? Nothing in his lifestyle is certain, except for one fate that lay hidden in the dark; the moon will strike twice, and once it shines its light upon everything in this world, be careful who you call your enemies, as no one is safe from the light that will reveal all.
