"I don't fear Kiahn's wrath...because you've already killed me." Kiahn seizes Sooho from Prince Issac as a spoil of war, but Sooho forces his master to give the prince half of his conquered territory. The gift alters the balance of power between Issac and his sadistic cousin Prince N... ick. Meanwhile, the dragon Sharka spies on Sooho from the shadows. The Sky Priestesses jockey for power on their floating continent. Kiahn's calculating fianc'e Miyar schemes to dispose of Sooho. And Issac has an ace up his sleeve, and he intends to play that card at Kiahn's upcoming wedding.
