    As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him - with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

    War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it, with the East as his ally and the empire as his enemy. He's finally managed to dismiss the memory of Kestrel, even if he can't quite forget her. Kestrel turned into someone he could no longer recognize: someone who cared more for the empire than for the lives of innocent people - and certainly more than she cared for him. At least that's what he thinks.

    Als Tochter des ranghöchsten Generals von Valoria hat die siebzehnjährige Kestrel nur zwei Möglichkeiten: der Armee beizutreten oder jung zu heiraten. Aber Kestrel hat fürs Kämpfen wenig übrig; für sie ist die Musik das kostbarste Gut. Einem plötzlichen Impuls folgend ersteigert sie den Sklaven Arin, der sie auf unerklärliche Weise fasziniert. Schon bald muss sie sich eingestehen, dass sie mehr für ihn empfindet, als sie sollte. Doch er hat ein Geheimnis - und der Preis, den sie schließlich für ihn zahlt, wird ihr Herz sein.

Can she even trust herself? For Kestrel is becoming very good at deception.
