(From the publisher):
"Remember the road of silk." The old woman’s words rang in Yasamin's ears as she set sail for Dragonval to marry its king–not something she wanted, but something she had to do to save her people and her kingdom. But the words haunted her. What was the road of silk, what did it mean? She was alone on a vessel belonging to King Amir, guarded by a giant soldier named Goliagoth, her only companions, her old nurse, a child given to her as a wedding present and Arash, a young man taken prisoner at her very doorstep. Little did Yasamin realize what waited for her. She had yet to learn this trip was more than a simple journey to become Queen. She had yet to meet Mosesra who would change the way she looked at the world forever. She had yet to meet the demons that would try and stop them from reaching Dragonval. And, she had yet to meet the dangerous evil waiting for her, hidden deep in the darkness, a darkness more dangerous than the king she was fated to marry.
This voyage was more than simply sailing from her homeland to Dragonval. It was a journey of lessons: of growth, loss, relationships. It was a journey of hate and love, of belief and disbelief. Most importantly, it was a journey where Yasamin learned about the great battle between followers of the Light and followers of the Darkness: where she learned that while the kingdoms fought each other, the battle of the Light and Dark battled within her – for she was The One for whom both waited; she was the one who carried the seed of each. And only she could create the road of silk – or destroy it.
