For 17-year-old Princess Amethysta Serelle, the royal life is anything but enchanting.
She finds herself forever torn between duty and desire - desperately craving freedom, yet bound by the burden of her bloodline. With the realm of Vataenya divided by intolerance, and stained by a veiled and violent past, none take kindly to those who are different. For Amethysta's sake, her mother must conceal her daughter's mystifying secret from all - including from Amethysta herself.
Once driven to her wit's end, Amethysta sets out on an unrelenting search for answers that will leave her teetering on the very edge of anguish and strife. With each harrowing turn, Amethysta encounters devastating loss, uncovers the mortifying unknown, and comes face to face with the calamitous heartache that awaits her.
All the while, an enigmatic blue glow sleeps below the surface, ready to unfold a world of chaos.
I like this book very much the story , character, and the atmosphere overall. but there where some parts that dragged on a little to much but it would get even more exciting as it continued with other envounters along the way. Overall i would say this is a very good story to listen to again and cant wait for the second book.

Holly Lindin did an amazing job in voicing over this book! Just really made it come alive!
Sara Secora did a beautiful job writing this story. It took me a while to get into the the book but it all came together well at the end.
Being a writer myself I know you have to explain things to have it make sense.
Arc is my favorite character! Love that he has a Scottish accent. And he's a bad a** with magic!
The princess seems a bit of a spoiled brat at times but I guess that's just her as the character.
I feel bad for Soron. I am afraid he will get his feelings hurt in the next book to come .
But I have totally shipped arc and amithystia.
Looking forward to book two in the series!
