A Fool's ErrandBook - 2013
But the Regent Mordecai has them trapped and he wants them dead so that the truth will die with them. He is a heartbeat from seeing it done when Azriel boldly bargains: release them and they will seek Genezing. Mordecai agrees but warns that if they do not return with proof that the pool exists, he'll make those dearest to them suffer--and he'll start with King Finnius.
Persephone has never needed Azriel's teasing warmth more, but she is finding out there is a price to pay for having broken past promises. Together, they set off on a journey that will take them to the farthest corners of the kingdom. Danger will ever lie ahead and behind them; they will battle men and beasts alike. Will Persephone and Azriel survive these perils? And will this quest see their romance grow cold--or will it burn hotter than ever?
