Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin's life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep.
When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won't reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help her, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother and herself. But what she finds shatters everything she believed about her world, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom @goodreads
I fell right in love with Silas as he is in this book so much doing good things and he has secrets, but I know what they are. . . mwahahahaahah.
So Errin is living in a hovel of a home that she rents from some jerk named Unwin. Her mother has some kind of disease that makes her crazy when the full moon is out. Poor Errin is trying to keep her mother locked away, making potions to sell to Silas to help her and her mother. Errin's brother Lief is also missing. Everything seems like doom and gloom.
it actually is because The Sleeping Prince was awakened by the queen and now he's wreaking havoc across the land with his golems. Killing everything in his path . . . well almost everything. There are things he wants and he will get that at whatever cost.
Of course now I need the next book to see what is going to happen with that ending.
