She must make sure her son Damin lives to be old enough to restore the Wolfblade name to its former glory. Elezaar the Dwarf is a small man with big secrets but that doesnt matter to Marla Wolfblade.

She needs someone politically astute to guide her through the maze of court politics and Elezaar the Dwarf knows more than he lets on. As Elezaar teaches Marla the Rules of Gaining and Wielding Power, Marla starts on the road to becoming a tactician and a wily diplomat but will that be enough to keep her son alive?
