Lies. Angry-hate s#x. Second chances.
A reckoning is coming. But not the one Axel was counting on.
Society is still in shambles, and although Axel wants to help stitch it back together, he was not prepared to do it alongside the woman who tore his heart out. Celeste had been his entire world. That was, until she told him it had all been a lie. She had never truly loved him. Axel wants answers, but he wants to retain his hard-won peace more. Ignoring Celeste is his only option. Too bad a certain goddess doesn’t agree with him. It isn’t long before Axel realises he doesn’t know the true meaning of the word reckoning.
Celeste had once loved the handsome, irreverent fire paladin with all her heart. But leaving Axel had been necessary, a matter of life and death. Confronted with the hidden, dark nature of their society, she’d had no time for tears. Instead, Celeste was forced to put on her big girl panties and take care of business. Alone. Yes, she has lied, but her secrets have made her capable and strong. She intends to prove as much during the Warden Trials. She only wishes Axel would allow her to show him too.
Will Axel and Celeste get their second chance at happiness? Or will old betrayals and new secrets divide them forever?
