    Summary

    In the low light, Kara watches them approach. Their dark gambeson, heavy coat of chain, and ornate breastplate all indicate militaristic authority, but the armor appears ill-fitted as it shifts around them. Their gait is awkward, like the weight of the steel is unfamiliar to them, but Kara cannot make out their face, the dark hood of their cloak pulled too far down and the torchlight too dim for any noticeable features to show. A gloved hand reaches forward to pull open her cell door.

    With aching legs, Kara pushes herself to her feet.

    “Do not stand on my account, Captain.” The figure says. Then, with an unexpected softness: “I have not come in vengeance like your visitor last night.”

    “So you say,” Kara calls out. “And yet you come in the armor of a King’s knight.”

    The General pauses. From the tone of her voice, Kara thinks she might be smiling. “So it appears.”

    OR: Kara Zor-El, feared pirate of the endless seas, gives herself over to protect her crew from King Lex. There, in the dungeons beneath his castle, she meets the Knight, the General, the Princess, Lena Luthor.

    Summary

    Lena allowed herself to fall in love.

    Fully and wholly.

    No boundaries or obstacles put in place. No need to earn or prove like Lena had demanded of so many others after being burnt too many times to count.

    Lena fell in love with a perfect stranger on a crashing plane.

    Summary

    In the West, just beyond the Strait of Bryneich, there stand nine independent island realms, all matriarchal and formidable in their own right. These islands are collectively known as the Empire of Pavia. While the realms of the Empire come together for purposes of defense against their aggressive neighbors to the East, and matters of general trade, each of the realms are ruled independently and responsible for their own affairs.

    The strongest of these Pavian Realms are Argos, ruled by the Sapphire Queen, Queen Kara; Rojas, ruled by the Ruby Queen, Queen Andrea; and the Kieran Isles, ruled by the Emerald Queen, Queen Lena.

    When a mysterious evildoer begins a series of attacks on Argos and the Kieran Isles, Kara, Lena and their clans must unite to determine who the culprit is and destroy them before they themselves are destroyed. While they pull together to fight the villainy that plagues their realms, the two Queens feel an instant and passionate connection, but an oath made prevents them from being together. They are tossed into a sea of tumult as their desires grow and it becomes more impossible to deny their love.

    Our story begins as one queen takes her last breath and another rises in her place...
