A Queen’s quest for supremacy.
A Royal family threatened by the vengeance.
A Solomanic triangle is their means to deliverance.

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?
