For centuries the matriarchy of Shabanvah has rested peacefully in a far stretch of the Eastern trade routes. Fair and affluent, the realm has flourished under the rule of benevolent queens who have passed the crown from mother to daughter in an elaborate ceremony of love and politics. Relationships are made stronger or ripped apart in this contest for the crown.
Tonight the beloved Queen Rahvan must choose which of her three beautiful daughters is best suited to rule the realm: the popular Sharnaz, the proud Zahra or the peaceful Kimiya.
In recent weeks the priestess, Elaheh, has suffered dreams of a dark shadow brooding in the court so the Queen’s most trusted advisor, Amrakay, has recommended caution. To set the Queen’s mind at ease General Hafez has assigned his most trusted imperial guards to oversee the ceremony.
