The Lords' Gambit Series is shifting to a brand new character and storyline once again in Volume Three: Vanguard of Justice, bringing knights, pirates, and assassins together in a high seas mythological fantasy adventure.
Freya, our newest main character, is the commander of the Order of Holy Knights.
Freya has been tasked with one primary duty: serve as an advisor, right-hand, and protector of Crown Princess Mariabelle, who is set to take her rightful place on the throne at the turning of her twentieth spring.
When the treasonous King Regent schemes to overthrow his niece's right to the throne, Freya stands between the princess she loves and the sure destruction awaiting her people.
Pirate King Seba and his crew of shadows about The Celestial's Tears are the terror of both sea and land.
Said to be wraiths, the crew (under the watchful, shadowy eyes of First Mate Caitlin), is loyal to the estranged Prince of the shadow kingdom Kertopa.
When the King Regent of the lords' United Provinces offers Seba an opportunity to finally retake his throne in Kertopa in exchange for whisking Princess Mariabelle away, the Pirate King does not expect a Holy Knight to be the one standing in his way.
Pirate or Knight, Princess or Prince those who board The Celestial's Tears never come back the same. Assassins hail from the ship, or at least that's what the legends say.
To return to Kertopa and break a dark curse thousands of years in the making, Freya finds herself making a deal with the shadows themselves to save her Princess, and their entire kingdom.
When the price for failure is her own soul in exchange, but success only sets the stage for world-wide war, Freya and Seba must decide how much having the right royal on the throne is truly, in the end, worth sacrificing.
