Burden of Power

The Wallkeeper Trilogy, Book #1

She’s not ready to rule. But when the king goes mad, she doesn't have a choice.

As the first female heir to the throne of Rahm, Ria is surrounded by skeptics. Her dazzling wit and easy confidence hide the truth: She really doesn’t know what she’s doing. But she’d better learn fast because her father’s volatile behavior is getting worse.

When the king gets embroiled in a power struggle with Merek, captain of the Wall Guard, Ria sees an opportunity. She proposes a tour of the damaged wall, giving her an excuse to prove herself by acting in her father’s stead.

But Merek doesn’t have time for Ria’s schemes. A criminal network has infiltrated a critical border city, and he resents being pulled from his post. Abandoning his investigation could lead to disaster.

Stubborn wills collide as Ria and Merek wrestle in a shifting balance of power. Only by learning to trust each other can they merge their strong personalities into a dynamic partnership. Will it be enough to save Ria when the threat to Rahm turns dangerously personal?

Burden of Power is the first in the gripping Wallkeeper trilogy. With rich layers of action, combat, political intrigue, and romantic suspense, you’ll be drawn into a medieval fantasy where characters come alive and keep you wondering about them long after you’ve read the last page.
