Publisher's Summary

In this mesmerizing sequel to the New York Times best-selling Girls of Paper and Fire, Lei and Wren have escaped their oppressive lives in the Hidden Palace, but soon learn that freedom comes with a terrible cost.

Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn't the end of the plan - it's just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei's head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within. 

Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?

Good story, not super well executed

It kills me to give such a low rating! I loved the first book, but this one fell flat and even a little annoying.

The bright spot was new side characters, but they were underused and their story lines were hardly explored. A shame since I was much more interested in them than the main character!

I'm not pleased by this ending

I feel so betrayed by this author. The first book in this series was very difficult to read but seemed like such an important one. That you can get away from your sexual assailants and fight to live after that. So, I was so excited to watch them fight and slowly succeed but then the ending betrayed all of that by putting her back into his hands again. I don't believe I will continue with this series bc I can't trust this author anymore...
