Prince Magnus and Princess Cleo have escaped from King Gaius’ attempt to execute Cleo. Although, Cleo feels like she likes Magnus, her friends keep warning her away from him and she struggles with what he has done in the past. They will have to band together with their rebel friends if they have any hope of saving Mytica from King Gaius’ thirst for power. Princess Lucia is coming into her magic and the kindred are being gathered and all the leaders are hoping to have that power on their side.
This fantasy series is impossible to put down. Although I wait a year between each book, it is easy to pick up and remember everything that is going on. This book was action packed and alliances are starting to be made. I loved this book, the same as I have loved all the books in the series. The violence is someone’s eye is removed and a hand is cut off.
