Publisher's summary

Some will try to trap her in hopes of harnessing her dark power. Others will seek to end her, deeming it too terrible to risk. In the end, he will destroy them all - because Quinn is his weapon, and he plans to keep it that way.

Lazarus was warned that Quinn's power might be too great, even for him, but nothing prepared him for the truth of it until she held a dagger over him, and he was powerless to stop it. Now at odds with himself, the future king of Norcasta must find a way to regain control of his house and secure an alliance with the Pirate Queen...before fate tips its hand once more, and his carefully laid plans are led astray.

Quinn's loyalty is not easily won, but Lazarus has managed to do it. Now, the vassal and right-hand of Lord Fierte, Quinn seeks to gain him an alliance with Ilvas all the while challenging him at every turn. With the Cisean tribes won over, and the blood heirs behind them, Quinn expects this to be an easy task, but soon finds herself entangled in a web of lies.

Forced to gamble with her life - and the lives of her comrades - Quinn must make a choice that will either save or doom them all.

Contains mature themes.

Needed more romance, however.....

I still wish it had more romance but the action held me so captivated I hardly noticed. A few more curse words but far and few between and no sex which, I freakin wish they would! I loved the secondary characters as well. They made me laugh! Also, so far no love triangle otherwise I would stop reading.

4 stars

this book was alot more political than in the first book. I didn't mind it held my attention. Good inbetween book. I'm curious on how the rest of the series is going to go. I'm not totally invested and obsessed with any of the characters but I still enjoyed this story.

Gotta keep listening ☺️

Finally a female character that isn't whiny! The authors did wonderfully! It's not full of sex scenes, but a dance between the two. Both wanting more, and yet, the story must evolve further! Onto book 3!

Still hooked

I like how there are still mysteries. In some novels you have a lead constantly asking why, and getting answers. Here, there is trust still attempting to be built. So, there is still a guard up, and unanswered questions.

It just gets better!

It seems impossible, but this book is even better than the first one! The romantic suspense is ratcheted up even higher, and the action and plot twists will leave you listening (or turning the pages) well into the night! This series is quickly becoming a favorite.

Expertly written

The intricate tale is smoothly written to enrapture the reader. The delicate nature and beauty in the voice entrancing you to hear the tale as it comes alive before you. Such a great work, I am floored.

Slow start, but great story!

I took a chance on this one. This book had a very slow start. I almost decided to give it back, but decided to stick it out. Eventually, the book took on a life and I couldn't stop listening.

However, the story in book came to a halt and I was glad that I had already purchased book 2. I loved the interaction between Quinn and Las as they started to get to know each other, but I have to say that Quinn is quite rude and hard to like as the main female character. I get distrust but she is truly something else.

Stick with the book through the end and I'm sure you will see the potential going into book 2.
