What she doesn’t anticipate is how her fate will twine with the King’s son, Kalmin Morgan when he nearly runs her over with his mount, a lion named Pride. He finds himself fascinated with Hesse, seeking her out during class and after sunset while she works. Rumors start to spread and when Hesse’s evil step-sister Kloe teams up with her evil wizard fling, Jax ‘The Devil’ Calatin, they aim to do Hesse ill will.
