I should've broken your jaw instead. Then I wouldn't have to listen to your ridiculous orders!
King Jaron stages a fight with his new captain of the guard, Roden. Jaron believes that someone is sneaking information to their enemy, so he thought that, "If I can't make myself look stronger than I am, then I'll do the opposite.
Jaron receives news of an attack on a town called Libeth. He also learns that his best friend Imogen had been taken by Avenia. The war had begun.
Battles are being fought all over Carthya. The odds that Carthya will win are small. Jaron, however, does not lose hope.
Jaron and Roden are captured and are about to be executed! However, an unexpected ally comes to save the day by slipping Jaron a knife. Jaron then uses the knife to cut him and Roden free!
Jaron goes to confront the person who captured him, King Vargan. Vargan attempted to kill Jaron, but was betrayed by his own commander. Vargan's commander, Commander Kippenger, killed him because, ironically, he thought violence was no longer the answer.
Commander Kippenger becomes the King of Avenia, and Jaron returns to his castle. Despite the betrothal, Amiranda marries Tobias, and Jaron marries Imogen.
