In this sequel to An Orphan’s Tale, after leaving the comfort of Whiterun and the Companions in order to find her destiny, Selene receives a note from Ulfric Stormcloak, summoning her to the Palace of the Kings. He invites her to join his army as an operative–basically, as his personal spy. Selene accepts and moves into the palace, where Ulfric proceeds to woo her. She launches into an uneasy love affair with the jarl as she helps him lead the Stormcloaks to victory. But can she abide his abject prejudice against anyone who isn’t a Nord?
