Tristan served nearly two decades as a Templar—slayers of monsters, mages, and men. A man, whom sacrificed everything, for the sake of his loved ones and the innocent. Abruptly walking away meant leaving that life far behind him, along with many responsibilities and enemies.
Now far removed from the life of a Templar, Tristan defends his home, by order of his king. His latest assignment is a politically contested marriage to one high-ranking noblewoman from a rivaling kingdom. The mission, Kirin Talmarian, is every man's dream, but can Tristan keep her safe?
Demons from his past career soon find root in his present, dragging Tristan and Kirin into a political conflict, which breaks the borders of kingdoms and realms. Tristan must fight for their lives against the overwhelming threat of monsters, rogue sorcerers, and above all else, the corruption of men.
