Publisher's Summary

Throne of Glass meets Black Jewels in this twisted yet alluring dark fantasy tale.  

Quinn Darkova, freed from the chains of slavery, wants nothing more than vengeance against those who sold her. But with her dark powers on the rise and her ascension nearing, Quinn's blood retribution will have to wait in favor of her immediate survival.  

Lazarus Fierte is a nobleman without equal. He's as controlling as he is stubborn, and for the last six years, he's been waiting for a woman to appear - but not just any woman. A Maji of great power, capable of terrible things. She could be the key to everything he holds dear.  

His savior...or his destroyer. The only thing he didn't predict was that she would become both.  

Contains mature themes.

10/5 stars!

If I could give this book more stars I would! I absolutely LOVED it! I’ve been in a funk since reading Sarah J. Maas’ series because I was so in love with those characters, and this book finally pulled me out! Quinn Darkova was instantly captivating! She’s mysterious, but also compassionate. I loved her spunk, the way her past shaped her, and her ability to defend herself. Her relationships with the other characters were unique, and the author did an amazing job of sucking the reader into this world without making it seem too far fetched. The setting, the fighting, the magic...ahhh! I cannot wait for book 2. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, but honestly I would have bought it in a heartbeat. It’s amazing!

Captivating listen

I really enjoyed this story, at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the narrator but as you get to know the MC you realize how much she fits just right for her. This story definitely keeps you on your toes as you read. Can’t wait to listen to the next one!

Too grim to be enjoyable

This is well thought out and well written. Having said that I didn’t like it. There was nothing to redeem a dark tale. The characters were unlikeable and perhaps not explained well enough for me to accept/understand why their being completely Dark Magic was a good thing. Insufficient efforts to introduce empathy, curiosity, humour, kindness or charm was made for me to purchase the sequel.
