Shaye Eastly has never been in the presence of kings, or magic. In fact, she has never ventured further from her small village in the mortal kingdom of Nautia than the capital square. But when a stranger appears to help her evade the palace guards who’ve come to arrest her for suspected sorcery, Shaye must trust her new companion, Aydan, to keep her safe.
As they flee to Medeisia, the ancient land of sorcerers, Shaye is quickly wrapped up in a dangerous world with a target on her back as long-dormant abilities spark and a family history she’s never known begins to unravel before her. Meanwhile, Aydan’s wanted status and complicated relationship with the royal family leads them down a path they cannot turn from.
In the midst of imprisonment, torture, and rising political tension, Shaye and Aydan must rely on each other and decide if their feelings for one another can survive the horrors they endure, the implications that come with her growing power, and the family legacies that will follow them forever.
The Wayward Prince was published on 22nd September 2021 at 401 pages.
