Touma is not nobility, being raised a Human commoner and blacksmith's son, but the gods have a vital role for him to play in their prophecies.
As Kierra's best friend since childhood, Touma would do anything to take her away from the dark political world that shackles her to her duty as future queen.
César Pedronis is a tortured soul. Raised by the Elite in charge of the Fourth Allied Human Land, he was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth but iron through his heart.
The queen's decision to pledge Princess Kierra's hand to César gives the notorious Devil-Slayer a chance to take charge and fix the corruption wracking his world.
Vampire-Elf Prince Lunev is Kierra's chosen betrothed. He has guarded and sheltered her throughout her life, though that occasionally means erasing a memory or two.
Though Vampire-Elves rarely marry, she has captivated the prince so much that for her he will make an exception.

Ready to learn more?
Here's a sneak peek at the blurb:
Flames rise on the horizon. The Godmother rises to meet them.
Eliza Farrington the Third is the top Fairy Warrior in the universe, undefeated in both magic and physical strength. She is also The Godmother -- the protector and trainer of the Crown Princess.
For twenty years, Eliza has prepared her charge to bring change to the rule of terror the tyrannical Fairy King and Queen have inflicted upon the worlds. The Princess's kindness and mercy are already renowned, and her coronation is only a month away.
But the Dragon Emperor's legions landing on their doorstep threatens everything.
When the Dragon Emperor presents the sole remaining royal Dragon Egg to the Fair Folk with a deadly proposal, can Eliza change the fate of her beloved Princess?
Or will the hate of multiple generations snuff out their only flame of hope?
