Sword and Shield, the sequel to Holland C. Kirbo's Amazon Best-Seller, A Flame in the Night:
Lakyn has foiled Xarkuhl's attempt to kidnap the young Catalan prince. Now, she and all of Ceredwyn wait with bated breath, knowing the right hand of Maal, the dark god of Hael, prepares his assault on the continent of Perravia.
Lakyn and Reuel draw closer, but the waiting game wears on her. Tensions swell, and Lakyn chafes at being caged, but Reuel and Nolan fear the lengths to which Xarkuhl will go to neutralize her, and they refuse to allow her outside the city of Kaelin without an immortal guard. While she grapples for independence in a world gone mad, Lakyn discovers things are not always what they seem. Deceptions mount, and her core beliefs are shattered when she finds a secret religious text hidden in the chapel of Kaelin Castle. If its teachings are correct, Maal and The Three, the gods worshipped by Aewyr, aren't gods at all but archons of Elyon, The Most High, and Aewyr has been led horribly astray. Lakyn reels from her discovery and struggles to reconcile fact from fabrication. She's rocked further when Reuel suggests she's the Bright One of prophecy—the savior who will save them all.
As Lakyn discovers more about her true identity, she meets resistance from the one she trusts most. When Maal's forces make their move, truth becomes stranger than fiction, enemies become allies, and Lakyn's world will never be the same.
