‘The Tower’ By Lex Hodes

Every year for five years, Princess Willow has ridden out to the tower ruins to slay Akhanda, and each year the dragon returns. Willow always makes the journey out to the tower to meet her foe—even now, as war looms in the wake of the king’s death. But as the newly-crowned Queen Willow prepares to lead her armies, she must now face a threat greater than Akhanda ever was.
