Alyssa ana’Raisa, the reluctant princess heir to the Gray Wolf throne of the Fells, feels more comfortable striking with a sword than maneuvering at court. After a brush with death, Lyss goes on the offensive, meaning to end the war that has raged her whole life. If her gamble doesn’t pay off, she could lose her queendom before she even ascends to the throne. Across enemy lines in Arden, young rising star Captain Halston Matelon is being sent on ever more dangerous assignments. Between the terrifying rumors of witches and wolfish warriors to the north and his cruel king at home, Hal is caught in an impossible game of life and death.  Lyss and Hal’s intricately linked fates become inseparable when they fall under the shadow of a new enemy—a force that threatens to extinguish the last rays of hope in the Shattered Realms.

Editorial Reviews

“Distinctive, immersive worldbuilding…The hurtling pace keeps the pages turning through heated battles and embraces, daring plots and escapes.” Kirkus Reviews
“[An] ambitious yet effective follow-up to Flamecaster…Chima skillfully develops multiple story lines while fleshing out characters that we come to care about.” Booklist
“With betrayal, love, loss, and a spectacular twist, this well-crafted series installment can be read as a stand-alone…A solid, engaging fantasy that will resonate with new readers of Chima’s work and fans of her previous titles.” School Library Journal
