The Petal Garden of King Shubash with Peter and Shonaleigh

What price fury, when loyalty is questioned?

A tale of deceit, cunning, and the many faces we all wear. A king, a vizier, and a new bride who is set three impossible tasks on which her very life depends. The mighty King Shubash marries not for love, not even for desire, but out of fear. Fear of one woman's wisdom, and the power that she possesses. Can Hannah Leah break through ancient perceptions, and come out on top in a man's world?
