Excerpt“Traitor.” A fire ignited in her hands. As the blaze raced up her arms, the hounds roared with excitement. “You don’t deserve to carry the name of our house.” She pointed her finger at me with venom in her tone. “From this moment forward, you are nameless. You will only be known as the shadow prince.”
Her words seared a hole into my chest. In all my life, I had never felt as alone as I did at this moment. But in my heart, I knew I was making the right choice. Someday, I would return to the fire court and reclaim what was mine. I would restore my name, title, and reputation. For now, preventing this war took precedence. “I formally abdicate my throne to Liana. With her in power, the crown shall remain with the House of Djin.”
“You’ll never set foot in the fire territory again!” Liana shouted.
I didn’t respond as I headed for the exit—there was nothing left to say. The crowd booed as I passed. Some tried to push and shove me, while others threw broken pieces of crystal. Through it all, I remained focused on my mission. It was time to cast aside the childish prince and become the stone-hearted warrior. I would be the monster they feared—the slayer in the night.
I am the shadow prince.
