When wicked men first took the boy she loved, she was a child.
Now they’ve taken him again, but this time…she’s a queen.
For weeks, Malin plotted and schemed with the kingdom’s cruelest crooks, the Nightrender and the Guild of Kryv, to infiltrate a wicked masquerade.
They survived. They escaped. Most of them.
To the underbelly of the kingdom, the Nightrender never made it out of his own scheme. To Malin, he’s only Kase, the man who owns her heart, and who is once again a prisoner of their enemies. Malin and the Kryv will stop at nothing until he’s free. Even if it means claiming her birthright to a throne that brings death and war.
But when they discover Kase has been locked in a cruel spell, Malin must find a way to steal his new twisted memories before he is lost to them for good.
The only trouble is when Kase looks at Malin, all he sees is an enemy with a death sentence.
Return to the vicious world of the Eastern Kingdom. Part Viking, part Cinderella, the battle continues with more schemes, spicy romance, and epic adventure.
*Author Note* This book contains the spiciest scenes yet in this series. As a member of the mom-of-a-teenager club, I would recommend those who are not old enough to vote to read responsibly. There are open-door love scenes.
Could not wait to see what happened in this one. It really did a great job of showing how in politics and war you have to have patience and slowly follow a plan to get results. I could definitely feel and understand Malin’s pain as she had to work so very hard to get Kase back. While seeing Malin and Kase together and how they found each other again was quite epic, there is also great loss in this book that made me quite sad. I’m already fairly far into the next book in this series, because this series is just amazing and perfectly binge worthy.
