Malik is desperate to start a new life with his sisters in the prosperous city of Ziran, but when a spirit abducts his younger sister, Nadia, as payment into the city, Malik is forced to strike a deal: kill Karina, the princess, or never see Nadia again. Karina, grief-stricken over the assassination of her mother, the Sultana, makes a deal of her own: obtain the heart of a king and she can resurrect her mother. To get one, Karina offers her hand in marriage to the winner of a competition, one that Malik immediately joins. They must kill each other to get what they want…but what if what the want ends up being each other?
