    Seven hundred years ago, a Black Widow witch saw an ancient prophecy come to life in her web of dreams and visions. Now, the Dark Kingdom readies itself for the arrival of its queen, a witch who will wield more power than even the High Lord of Hell himself. But she is still young, still open to influence - and corruption.

    Witch - the Queen who would bring freedom to the realms - has come, but now she is lost in darkness, and has a long road to recovery ahead of her. While her adopted father, Saeten, waits for her to return to the living world, the third side of the triangle needed to complete the prophecy - the lover, Daemon - walks in the Twisted Kingdom on the edge of madness. As insidious whispers and dark schemes ferment treachery and betrayal, Jaenelle must make a choice: To protect those she loves, she must be more than an heir, she must become a Queen.
