There was a time, not long ago, when all Zara wanted was to have Nick back. Rescuing him from Valhalla should have made all her problems disappear. He's Bedford's greatest warrior, not to mention Zara's true soul mate. Except. Nick isn't the person he used to be. And neither is Zara. She's a warrior now, and a pixie queen. Astley's queen. She has a plan to stop the evil pixies that are ravaging her town, and her ideas are not the same as Nick's or Astley's. One thing they can all agree on though: war is here. And if Cassidy's premonitions are correct, then not every warrior will make it in the end, and Zara's gravest choice is yet to come.
