Jax Wendyll is the crown’s dog. As punishment for the unspeakable crimes that tourment him to this day, his life has been conscripted to the Empire Solaris. However, in an Empire afflicted by peace, his duties are relegated to unquestioningly aiding the antics of the youngest prince, Baldair.
Erion Le’Dan, a nobleman’s son, expects a quiet summer visit to the Imperial Palace, his only agenda to visit with his unlikely friends. But Jax’s discovery the legendary pirate Adela Lagmir’s old workroom inspires a hunt for her long lost treasure.
The pursuit of Adela’s truth takes the three men to the Imperial summer manor, built along the old pirate mainstays. When Adela’s trident is branded into a murdered servant, Prince Baldair’s summer amusement of treasure-hunting becomes a hunt to find the killer. But, as mysteries compound, the ghosts of Jax’s past may not be the only things haunting them.
Praise for The Crown’s Dog
“the plot was engaging–who can’t appreciate preying on people’s fear of ghosts–and the characters made it a very enjoyable read. I’ll definitely be reading the next book in this trilogy!”
— L.R.W. Lee, author of the Andy Smithson series
“Elise gives us another fun-filled story with The Crown’s Dog.”
“A strong opening to this prequel series to the Air Awakens books.”
— Two Chicks on Books
“Another delightful book by Elise Kova! Really great to be back with these characters again. I really enjoyed that this was a fun, quick read, and fitted into the Air Awakens world well (I would definitely recommend reading the main Air Awakens series first, otherwise reading this trilogy would be confusing).”
