Emelina Flores has come home to Ruina. After rescuing her sister, Olivia, from imprisonment in rival kingdom Lera, Em and Olivia together vow to rebuild Ruina to its former glory.
But just because Em and Olivia are out of Lera doesn’t mean they are safe. Their actions over the past year have had consequences, and they are now targets of retaliation. Olivia will destroy everyone who acts against Ruina. Em isn’t as sure.
Ever since Em posed as Prince Casimir’s betrothed in Lera, she’s started to see another side to this war. Lera may have destroyed the Ruined for decades, but Em knows that Cas is different. And now that he’s taken the throne, Em believes a truce is within reach. But Olivia suspects that Em’s romantic feelings for Cas are just coloring her judgement.
Em is determined to bring peace to her home. But when winning the war could mean betraying her family, she faces an impossible choice between loyalty and love. Em must stay one step ahead of her enemies—and her blood—before she’s the next victim in this battle for sovereignty. @goodreads
Olivia turned to see Em walking to her. Olivia could sense humans and Ruined around her, even at great distance. But not Em. Em wasn't human or Ruined. She was the only person in the world who could sneak up on Olivia.
Yes, the sisters are back. One of them is going a little bit off their rocker so we shall see where that goes in the final book in the trilogy.
AND HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER!
I waited the whole book for someone to kill this evil woman and there were a couple of chances and they didn't!!!!!!!!!!!! What!? Just kill her! I can't even people!
Maybe she will become good in the last book. I hope not because I want her taken out. There are a few people in the book that are stupid and evil. They won't see reason and they want to go off the deep end. I think one of them has become a berserker! That's not a bad thing on certain occasions =)
Anyway, Cas, Em, Aren and Iria are my favorites. I'm becoming extremely fond of Aren! I hope there are great things coming for him in the final book. Watch, I probably jinxed it and he will get killed!
I enjoyed the book a great deal with the exception of yelling at people to kill that one evil woman. Lol.
