A woman without a past with a dark power, a new king susceptible to her influence, and a choice between the darkness and the light.
As Einion’s coronation approaches, the doubts about his worthiness overshadow him. He’s a half-emrys, a child with both light and dark energies inside. In the mortal world, he can wield both powers, but Einion fears the dark power that leads to corruption. Despite increasing anguish from two women in his life, Einion must face the greater evil inside himself—to save the one he truly loves.
As a ruthless dark emrys, the chosen vessel for her bodiless master trapped in his eternal prison, Rhianu exists only to do her master’s bidding. But when a mission goes horribly awry, Rhianu stumbles into Einion’s life, only to be challenged by her versions of good and evil. Her heart is torn between power and love, between the past and the future. Betrayal is something Rhianu’s familiar with, and knowing its repercussions, she must follow through with her master’s plan to destroy Einion—no matter what the consequences or what her heart tells her.
Betrayed is the second novel in The Emrys Chronicles, an epic romantic fantasy series. If you like a brooding king, a heroine sent to betray him, and a fight between light and darkness, then you’ll love this book by E.E. Everly.
