She was a mother. She lost her child in the sands of a desert. When she found him, she couldn’t claim him as her own son. For fear she might be forced to reveal his identity, she cut off her tongue.


He was lover. But when duty called, he had to escort his own beloved to the gallows. For he knew love becomes immortal when duty is fulfilled.


She was a rebel. She struck her enemies with the force of lightning. But she fell in love with the handsome soldier sworn to subdue her.
