A Prince who can shift his arms into swords, a tutor who can shift his arms into wings, and a madman who wants to kill them both . . .
Like all royals, thirteen-year-old Prince Symon is a living weapon. Literally. His best friend, Lana, is also a blade shifter, his tutor is a bird shifter, and then his only brother is killed by fish shifters. Should Symon embrace animal shifter persecution like the rest of his kingdom?
Symon doesn’t have time to decide. Someone is trying to kill him, and his magic blades won’t be enough to save him. If he trusts the wrong people, he could start a war.
For generations, blade shifters have ruled commoners and animal shifters without trouble.
