Publisher's Summary

Amy Tintera's new YA fantasy trilogy blends the romance of Kiera Cass' Selection series and the epic stakes of Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen in a story of revenge, adventure, and unexpected love.

Emelina Flores has nothing. Her home in Ruina has been ravaged by war; her parents were killed, and her sister was kidnapped. Even though Em is only a useless Ruined - completely lacking any magic - she is determined to get revenge.

Her plan is simple: She will infiltrate the enemy's kingdom, posing as the crown prince's betrothed. She will lead an ambush. She will kill the king and everything he holds dear, including his son.

The closer Em gets to the prince, though, the more she questions her mission. Her rage-filled heart begins to soften. But with her life - and her family - on the line, love could be Em's deadliest mistake.

Good listen

I liked this book but the lack of a backstory really left me not knowing who I should root for. Besides that the story was good and I plan to continue the series on audio. The narration really kept me engaged in the story also. Overall 3.5 stars

Great Performance, but Story Sucked

I thought the performance was wonderful! However the storyline was lacking... The male protagonist, although kind and compassionate- was weak and lacked common sense. Whereas the female protagonist had more depth to her character. In general, the characters' reactions & feelings to the life-altering events seemed insincere and unrealistic.

Captivating

The story line caught my attention quickly and I began to cheer for Em's cause, though I felt her internal struggle as she got to know Caz more. The narration really made the characters come to life. The only sad part is having to wait for the next book.
