The War Queen
How do you dethrone a heart when its owner has stolen your kingdom?
Altarn is used to tolerating the biases of men. It comes with being the first female to secure the political State Head of Blindvar. But Kaelin, the State Head of Ruidenthall, crosses the line when he proposes a merger of their two states. Altarn has reason to believe this is Kaelin's attempt to make himself king of both. Believing it's her responsibility to "dethrone" him, she rides to her last ally to ask for aid.
