Intrigue, deception, betrayal. What are a few knives in the back between two lovers?
Qing Dynasty, China.
Some wounds cut too deeply to ever truly heal, to ever be forgotten. For the rebel Phong Quay, The Princess Ni Soung is one of those wounds—a remnant of the most painful chapter in his life, a pawn in his never ending war with his greatest enemy, the Emperor Ni Fehn.
As the Han rebellion against the Emperor intensifies, The Princess Soung becomes caught in the middle. As bait in the Emperor's most brazen bid to date to bring Phong Quay down, the princess may just find herself a casualty in the battle between the two men—a battle between the past and the present, between the truth and lies, between love and revenge.
