The King’s Own are as feared as they are ruthless, doing all of those
hard, and sometimes terrible, things necessary to ensure the safety of the
realm. Owing allegiance to the King alone, they are his spies, his assassins,

mastering them once again, allowing that cold calmness to settle over me so I

the things I never had.
