After saving her love, Princess Elyne returns to the Otherworld by order of her mother. But it's not the homecoming she expects. Furious Elyne has meddled with humans, the queen imprisons her and strips away her magic. To get it back, Elyne must perform one selfless act. When Queen Maeve sends Derron to find the Guardian of the Sword of Light, he can't leave without releasing Elyne. But freeing the princess comes with a price-he must take her with him on this dangerous quest, and both must deal with the love growing between them, as well as past hurts. Their search becomes more than a pursuit for the missing Guardian as Lord Kieran rises to dominate the Unseelie Court. He'll stop at nothing to gain control of both the Otherworld and the human realm. Even with the help of Elves, dragons and their human friends, the odds are stacked against Derron and Elyne.
