The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius as war looms on the horizon. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those who don’t. And in the center of it, all stands her: a woman condemned to walk in darkness, guided only by her past and determined to become the queen she was always meant to be. But first, she must survive long enough to reach the king’s side—because Aedion will not be there to save her this time.
Aelin has grown weary of being the lonely king’s ward. When rebellion threatens to unravel his carefully preserved peace, she embarks on a quest to find a weapon that could turn the tide of war. After all, she has been trained as a wielder of the High King’s power, and she knows that he is out there – somewhere in the war-torn world where magic used to be outlawed.

When she’s offered a choice between her happiness and the future of her country, she can’t refuse. But as she discovers that a growing threat against her kingdom has its roots in her family history, even Aelin may be unable to save what matters most.”
