I was royally screwed.
I had already dealt with my unforgiving family, fought far too many
demons, survived standing on an airport runway, escaped a burning
nightclub, and healed from a deadly head injury.
There was no way I’d survive this.
I looked at Prince Talien, my battle partner, as we stood before the
vanquished High Elder. Chang hung from the rotunda ceiling, wrapped in
vines and upside-down, and the older man glared at me with a wicked smile
as his words reverberated through my head.
Good luck with your mission, as you are now the High Elder.
Silence hung over the vast space, and all the War Mages went dead
silent as Chang’s words sunk in. The ring of two hundred trapped us, so
there was no running. I took a breath, and Talien also remained silent.

what I just landed in?
Swallowing, I tried to avoid looking at the ring of older War Mages, all
of whom had decades of magical experience. However, even from my
peripheral vision, I noticed stunned indignation spreading through the room.
Men and women looked at each other and muttered, ignoring all the vines
in the room. Fists tightened, and the air heated, but the Elders couldn’t
attack, thanks to Talien’s faerie tricks. He’d bound them all.
This wasn’t supposed to happen.
I wasn’t even fully bonded to my battle partner yet, meaning I was weak
as far as War Mages went.
“Chang.” The white-haired War Mage who officiated the duel stepped

her his hand and helped her stand. Thanks to Talien’s healing magic, her cut
