VILLAINY MOST FOUL
Valeron car Nadh swore violently. It was an impossible situation.
The Emperor was dead--killed by the vilest sort of treachery. And, if that weren't bad enough, his beautiful daughter, Aleysha, was being forced into marriage..a heinous marriage to her father's assassin!
Valeron had but a few days in which to halt these nefarious schemes...only a few days in which to rally the Kings on the other worlds of Carmeis...only a few days to catch the villain before he became the most powerful ruler of all.
Unfortunately, there was one small problem. Valeron car Hadh, Warlord of Branarius, was locked in prison, accused of murdering the Emperor...and they had left him there to rot!
