About Lesley's The Crowning Ceremony:

Darna, an indentured servant, bent the rules to be on stage during the auspicious birth of the royal matriarch's twins. What would she do to conceal the truth that only she discovers during the Crowning Ceremony?

"If the naked man being shackled to the floor in front of the elevated throne was lucky, Vyctra Scosan would deliver her twins before his sentencing. No vyctra before her had beheaded so many men in such a short period of time since the purging of unclean magic in the Time Before. Darna rather hoped the man wouldn’t be."
