In a world going through a Power Shift of a magnitude that hasn't been seen since the gods walked among the mortals; King Eris is determined to do anything to hold onto his new found power and make sure the kingdom of Iskandar comes out the other side unscathed. With a Kingmaker by his side, he is guaranteed to stay a step ahead of those who would see him fall. He was born to be King and nothing and no one will get in his way, not even a Kingmaker who would jump at the opportunity put a dagger through his chest. Malaika escaped a life under a tyrant Empress only to end up at the mercy of an equally power hungry and vicious King. Try hard as she might to escape her fate as Kingmaker; the chains of destiny bind her tighter to a King who would see the world burn before setting her free. With rebellion brewing in Iskandar and the threat of war from the mighty Ishtar Empire; Malaika has no choice but to believe that Eris will keep true to his word that she will be safe so long as she remains by his side.
