Lifes been many things for twenty-year-old Bryn Dawson, but one thing its never been is easy. And its only about to get harder. As the gossip of Bryn being betrothed to her true loves little brother, Patrick, becomes more reality than rumor, Bryn does her best to think positive thoughts, ignore Patricks odd behavior, avoid Pauls relentless advances, and attempt to conjure William back from his latest overseas mission.
She fails on all fronts. The night an army of Inheritors sets out with an agenda to deliver vengeance on any Guardian surrounding Bryn, the betrothal ball becomes the least of her worries. Instead of worrying about who shell be marching down the aisle toward, she has to accept she might not be making the journey down the aisle ever.
