It is not only the young people who are captivated by her character, even Lucien, who has had his own fair share of troubled past, cannot help but be enamored by her courage and compassion. In the middle of the conflict, a rather unusual bond is established between the two characters, and the question of what is more important – freedom or a shared feeling – is raised.

Despite the passion and devotion they share for one another, they are met with several obstacles, such as their past traumas and the antagonists who want to tear them apart. Vetta who is the king’s mistress also despises Danika to the core of her being while the people of Salem are still reeling from the fact that the child of their enemy is now their friend.

Finally, the real and innocent side of Danika as a good and fair monarch is unveiled, and she becomes beloved among the people. She has to deal with the consequences of the change and face the past demons to claim the love that blossomed despite all the odds.

The story has a few twists and turns, which finally culminates in a dramatic scene in which people are faced with betrayal, betrayal of trust and a test of the true meaning of love and forgiveness. The reader is left gasping for more as the future of Danika and Lucien is uncertain and the conclusion assured to make an indelible mark on readers.
