“Once upon an island, two warriors learned to love.”
In the realm beyond where humans live, the Bunog and Tayhu have been warring over trade routes and territories for nearly a century. Magda, a Bunog with blood that makes her as fast and strong as most of her enemies, is swept away by the stormy seas while fighting a Tayhu. She ends up on an island in human territory—along with the man trying to slay her.
Just as she regains consciousness and attempts to finish Malakan off, two children appear before them, hungry and in need of tender loving care. Unwilling to battle in front of innocent eyes, they agree to a truce. It plunges them into a different kind of war, one they have to wage not only on the mysterious monster inhabiting the island but also against their blossoming emotions.
In this story inspired by the nature and mythology of Panay, Philippines, discover a tale that starts with enemies and sparks a romance.
Prince Andre Peralta of Solana spent the last eight years in exile, drowning himself in liquor and gambling in casinos. When his father is assassinated by the Lozano cartel, duty to his tiny island country in the South Pacific trumps his fear and guilt.

Gemma has no patience for liars and gamblers, and something about this visitor crawls up her spine. His penetrating coffee eyes heat up her core, reigniting a dark passion and history she’d buried long ago. But when assassins find Andre and destroy Gemma’s home, vengeance guides both of them into dangerous waters.
