Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that the Tower of Alexis is impregnable...but Emily intends to prove them wrong.

The Kingdom of Zangaria has finally started its descent into civil war. King Randor has declared martial law, imprisoned the pregnant Crown Princess Alassa in the Tower of Alexis, and started preparations for a first strike against his enemies. The time has come for everyone to choose a side.

Emily has arrived in Alexis with the intention of freeing Alassa before her father can have her executed. But as Emily and her friends are drawn into a maelstrom of rebellious factions and crown loyalists and of commoners trying to escape the chaos and noblemen trying to make it worse, they find themselves faced with an insolvable problem.

If they manage to liberate Alassa - and put her on the throne - will there be anything left of Zangaria for her to rule?

this series isn't what it used to be

The first 1/2 of the book basically nothing happens except a lot of the same phrases and anecdotes from previous books about the commoners and nobles get reused. Emily and Cat decide to become "friends with benefits" with a bunch of romance novel like sex and relationship angst in a war zone type crap. Then Emily gets captured....again and fed anti magic potion....again by a home schooled nobody sorcerer. Hated the romance and Cat I didn't like the plot I didn't like the antagonists I still don't like all the repetitive phrases and Emily being randomly as god like powerful or weak as the plot currently demands.

please get rid of Tavia Gilbert

She has the inability to Express anything but hysterical emotion. please stop her from reading normal sentences in hysterics. She absolutely ruins the book. She has the ability to make you feel like the characters are in a constant state of hyperventilation. awful.

Horrible editing ruined the book

I'm not sure why they did it, but they shouldn't have. The audio is out of order. the studio starts in the middle of the book. Wow - way to ruin the story.
