She was trying to survive.
She extinguished an empire.
Georgianna has been banished from Cahlven protection. Forced to live in hiding, she must rely on secrets to stay alive and out of sight. She isn’t the only one at risk if she’s seen.
But the Cahlven are holding peace talks with the Adveni that will keep the Veniche oppressed under both invading forces. When Keiran reveals that the situation is worse than they ever imagined, Georgianna must bluff her hand and make a deal with her life.
Working against both the Adveni and the Cahlven, Georgianna and the rebels are trapped in from all sides. There is no one left to protect her. And if she’s going down, she’s bringing an empire with her.
"I thoroughly enjoyed reading Cooke’s work. The story has some fantastic plot twists and enough unanswered questions to have me eagerly anticipating the next in the series."

"Cooke's got the knack for producing a heart racing, gritty and terrifying plot that's set out to be rather an explosive one! With great character development and fast-paced action, its really got hold of my attention."
