Suddenly Shielder's Mark is living a fairy tale come true.

A commoner's son, he has broken the spell of Red Keep. And now he can collect the reward the king promised -- whatever he names. Smitten, he names the king's daughter.

But that's where the fairy tale ends.

The hero's sword he claimed at Red Keep is taken from him in a humiliating duel. He becomes a subject of scorn in court. And though he is allowed to marry the king's daughter, she may not be such a prize, after all.

Happily ever after is a lot harder than it looks...
