Seeking a place where she can belong, Kyreen finds anything but peace when she returns to Calan decades after fleeing with her family. This is the story of Kyreen’s flight from the castle with her twin brother and their mother; her subsequent separation from family and everything familiar; and her years spent as an outsider in a xenophobic society; culminating with Kyreen’s return to Calan almost two decades later. What has happened in her absence? Will Kyreen find a place among the Calanians still embroiled in the struggle that stole Kyreen’s family and childhood? What about the man she meets on the road home? How is he connected to her struggles? Is he friend or foe?

Now as the Calanians are poised to take back their castle, their land, and their lives, Kyreen finds herself struggling to learn what it means to be Calanian while negotiating the politics of being the princess. Can she resolve her issues with Lang before someone gets hurt? Does she still have a connection with the magical creature guarding the castle? Will she survive long enough to see her people returned to their rightful home?

All alone, struggling with grief, not caring of the dangers ahead, Kyreen faces her challenges one step at a time, but nothing in her past has prepared her for the harsh brutalities of the Salandingar Desert and its inhabitants. Forced to make decisions that will mark her forever, can Kyreen live with the version of herself that emerges from the hot sands? Is survival worth the cost?
