A Lord cursed for sixteen years.
A Princess manipulated by sorcery.

A wicked sorceress, the scheming sovereign has an agenda of her own to steal the throne and rid the castle of her stepchildren. Soon condemned to death, a risk saves the princess from execution, but forces the queen to banish her from the kingdom, delivering her to certain death.
Cursed by the same spiteful witch, Lord Nicolai is most dangerous when transformed. Feared by everyone, he can’t see an end to his beastly life until the princess arrives at his ghostly manor. When a chase ensues to break the curse, the princess risks everything to save Lord Nicolai.
Will a remedy be found in time, and how might the solution impact an evil queen, should the Scarlett Mark prevail?

The second novel in Abby Lane’s Reign of Blood and Magic series“…is rich and complex, with numerous engaging protagonists that make the prose dynamic, immersive, and ideal for fans of epic fantasy.” Self-Publishing Review
A Queen’s quest for supremacy.
A Royal family threatened by the vengeance.
A Solomanic triangle is their means to deliverance.
Seeking revenge, Queen Cynara signs a blood contract with the devil Daemonis to gain new powers and enable her to conjure the highest level of Solomanic magic. Using an invocation spell, she shadows three princesses movements and tests her circle’s potential in the king’s forest, a forest the people say shelters evil. The action inters Ruby to a dark fate, binds Rose to the sea, and threatens Scarlett in a place that should earn peace, not further harm. Not even a god is safe from the queen’s sorcery.
But power comes with a price and unbeknownst to Cynara, the devil has a secret strategy. When a blood moon eclipses the night, Cynara invokes her magic in the king’s forest. Will her quest for supremacy prevail, and how might it challenge the current King Lowell, The Ebony Queen’s own son?
