Publisher's summary

An instant best-selling tale of empowering women in the face of impossible odds, perfect for Sarah J. Maas and Holly Black fans.

For 10 years, Nefari Ashcroft, princess of the Shadow Kingdom, has hidden. For 10 years, she's endured the memory of everyone she's lost. Half the shadow people are dead, the other half are enslaved, and her once prosperous kingdom is nothing but an elaborate mass grave.

Now, dark magic has allowed the Queen of Salix to wreak havoc on the realm; wraiths hunt from the sky, the harvestmen march across the land, and the bone criers pick apart the flesh of the corpses left behind.

Nefari was prophesied to rise and be the sword of the realm. With her bright starlight magic, she was born to conquer the darkness. And for 10 years, she's trained to do just that....

It should be easy to step into the position her mother left for her, since everyone thought she died the day her kingdom was destroyed. But staying hidden - remaining 'nobody' - is simpler than accepting her dark past, enduring her harrowing fate, and claiming her broken crown.

This series is a detailed world full of legends and myths given flesh, and a princess chosen to save them all.
