THE REBELS forge ahead. Princess Cleo slays with sweetness-and a secret that might control Lucia's magic-as she and vengeful Jonas lead the hunt for the all-powerful Kindred. THE KRAESHIANS join the fray. Ashur and Amara, the royal siblings from the vast kingdom across the Silver Sea, prove to be just as ruthless as they are charming as they manipulate their way to victory. THE WATCHERS follow Melenia out of the Sanctuary. They ally, in the flesh, with King Gaius, who vows to use Lucia's powers to unveil the Kindred.
And which side will Prince Magnus choose, now that everyone he's been betrayed by everyone he's ever loved?
