|This is the first book of the Black Wolves trilogy.
In the Sirinakian Empire there lies an area called The Hundred. This area was saved from warring demons by a nobleman from the Empire who made himself King of the Hundred. Captain Kellas of the legendary Black Wolves gets assigned to be the head of the King’s son’s personal guard, as well as for his daughter, Dannarah. She wants nothing else in life than to be a giant eagle rider instead of being married off.
Forty-four years later, The Hundred is a very different place. The palace is full of intrigue with at least three separate factions and there is civil unrest in the Kingdom. Also, the demons are back.
We learn that Dannarah gets her wish, becoming a Marshal of one of the eagle-riding groups. We also learn that her brother, Atani, died twenty-two years ago as he was murdered in a traitorous plot. Captain Kellas now lives in exile far away from the palace as he sees the death of the King as a personal failure. With the Black Wolves disbanded, things are getting out of hand.
Dannarah comes to Kellas with a plea; to rejoin the palace guard and save her nephew, the new King of The Hundred, Jehosh. Reluctant at first, Kellas accepts.
