Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.
The Queen isn’t mentioned in this story, because she is dead. Queen Layli was the wife of King Zaykel, and they lived happily together for several years before she gave birth to their one and only child, a daughter. As is the way on this planet (and legislated, no less), the birth is noted, but the name is sealed in the vault of the Council until she ascends the throne upon the death of her father. Queen Layli contracted pneumonia when the princess was 17 and died in weeks, much to the distress of the King and his daughter.
It isn’t known if King Zaykel is dead or not, so they are they unable to open the vault to reveal the name of the princess.
