Lough's dismal fate drives him to find the truth behind his betrayal and the key to return to his human form. His only hope of return lays in awakening the last piece of human life he has left: his sleeping heart. But when it comes to understanding concepts like virtue, morality, and kindness, Lough is forced to learn from example. And those examples come from the most unexpected place.
The royal home he serves includes a brave, selfless queen seeking to protect her children from the vicious temper of their powerful father, and a fearless young prince determined to liberate his people. As Lough witnesses their countless acts of courage, he becomes their devoted protector and trustworthy confidant. A strong bond of trust between family and servant blooms.
Just as bonds become ties, a secret is learned that could shatter the royal family. The king seeks to destroy the one true threat to his crown: his son. Just as this secret spreads, an unexpected member of the royal family reveals the truth behind Lough’s past. Lough learns from this revelation that an heir to his ancient throne lives and is the only person alive who possesses the skills to return his ancestor back to his true form.
With such secrets revealed Lough faces a decision he never thought would be a challenge. Does he choose to repossess his human form and regain his lost crown for the sake of vengeance? Or does he stay loyal to a family that needs his help more than ever?
With a decision of the heart at hand, one can only hope an android can make the right choice.
