But when the young couple suffers a deadly attack from an unknown enemy, it soon becomes clear their strong feelings can't keep the past from haunting them. On the run from their adversaries and searching for answers, Rosa and Alessandro begin to unravel the secret behind the conspiracy to keep them apart: an ancient prophecy that predicted the destruction of all Arcadia if the two rival dynasties ever married and bore children. And now, they must outrun those who think they're better off dead.
