With Jude dead, there’s another opening on the council of guardians and they want Liam to round out the twelve. But Liam still isn’t convinced that the guardians have Isa’s best interest at heart and not only that, Isa doesn’t want him as a guardian and he doesn’t want to do anything that would anger her.

In the end Pierre convinces him that Isa’s very life is on the line if he doesn’t join. He agrees and then discovers that the ceremony to become a guardian kills more dragons than it passes.

Will Liam survive?

First Chapter

Isa trudged to her room and sank into her chair. She wanted to stay with Grace after they told her about Jude, but Grace had raced away and locked herself in her room. If the tables had been turned, Isa would want to be alone as well.

A few tears leaked out of the corners of her eyes. She loved Jude too. Not in the way Grace did, but he was amongst the favorites of her guardians. And now he was dead. Killed by the rebels who would love to get their hands on her. Rebels with an inside man in the castle who would like to kill her.

Isa stared at the books and scrolls that had been abandoned when Drew rushed in with the news. She picked up the tiny paper that held the name of a guardian descended from wizards of old.

She was still shocked by the name.

Pierre.

He couldn’t be the wizard. He was always on the lookout for her. But what were the chances that two people in the castle could possibly have come from a line of wizards? It was not very likely.

Though, maybe it was. Maybe their history went so far back that multiple people could be descended from wizards. And just because they had wizard ancestors didn’t mean they were wizards.

Pierre couldn’t possibly be the one trying to kill her. But not just her. Jude too.

No, it wasn’t him. Pierre was a good man.

“What does this mean, Your Majesty?” Marissa motioned to the paper, and Isa jumped. She hadn’t seen Marissa waiting when she arrived back at her room. She didn’t have time to deal with Marissa. She had more pressing things to think about.

Isa met Marissa’s eyes. If Grace was here, she would help Isa understand exactly what this meant. But she couldn’t talk about everything with Marissa.

Isa crushed the paper with Pierre’s name. “Nothing. It means nothing. Please take the books and the scrolls to the library. Thank you for finding the name. Don’t tell anyone what you found, including Bartlby.”

Marissa’s face fell, but Isa didn’t care. Marissa’s disappointment was the least of her worries. Isa had a requiem to prepare for and a guardian to investigate.

Dragon’s teeth! Why did it have to be Pierre?

Marissa gathered all of the scrolls and books and trudged out of the room. Isa stared at the door for a long time after that.

She wouldn’t be able to trust Pierre. But should she be worried that he might kill her? Maybe.

She’d lost all of her confidants. There was no one to talk to. She should’ve made up with Grace ages ago, but now Grace would think she was being nice because of Jude.

Missy nudged Isa’s toe, and Isa glanced down. “Are we friends again?”

Of course, Missy didn’t answer. She just jumped onto Isa’s lap and curled up. Isa absentmindedly stroked her fur. Missy rarely left Liam’s side since Isa had killed him. She really should make up with him.

Isa’s heart twinged.

Jude was dead. Tavish was dead.

Life was too short to hold grudges and be angry. She loved Liam. But his betrayal still lay deep in her heart.

As if she could hear Isa’s thoughts, Missy stood and jumped down. She went to the door and scratched at it.

“I’m not going with you,” Isa said, standing.

She opened the door. Drew stood on the other side of it and met her eyes. His were red and swollen. Missy slipped past him, and Isa closed the door between them without a word.

How many more people would die before the rebels were defeated?
