King Richard III has his hands full overseeing the country of Baladia. Tensions are mounting with surrounding nations. The Kurtogovians are massing at the border and the Marans support of slavery is evoking protests by the Baladian subjects.
Fortunately the king’s son, Crown Prince Richard, is by his side to deal with the pressing issues at hand. His dependability and pleasant nature are admired by all. Or are they?
When Prince Richard falls ill, the prognosis is shocking. Aplastic anemia. Without a bone marrow transplant, he will die. Will the King’s brothers, Lord Byronie and Lord Carmarthen be able to donate? Or perhaps Eric, John or Bernice, the Prince’s siblings will be able to save his life.
When forced by unforeseen circumstances to look outside the family for a donor, the King appeals to the public to help. Can the royal family’s prayers and faith prevail? Will someone be found to save the prince or will more sinister plans prevail and cost the Prince his life?
