In a land where magic is might, Catalia Fisa is the mightiest of them all . . .
Catalia Fisa, Lost Princess, has been running from destiny her whole life. Yet deep down, she has always believed that the prophecy shadowing her every step is inescapable: her unimaginable power will bring unfathomable disaster.
But now her newfound loved ones are caught between the shadow of Cat's tortured past and the threat of her world-shattering future. Although it may be that this, even with all her power, is still the one battle she cannot win, Cat's determined not to go down without a fight.
As the realms descend into all-out war, Cat knows she must embrace the power at her command. With Griffin by her side and Gods willing, perhaps she can emerge victorious in this fiery forging of a new Kingdom.

A USA Today Bestseller
Bouchet ramps up the excitement in her second Kingmaker Chronicles fantasy romance (after A Promise of Fire) with high-intensity passion; adrenaline-fueled battles of wits, magic, and might; a host of magical creatures; and enough politics and world-shaking to keep readers eager for the final volume. Catalia Fisa is the "impetuous," "reckless," and "terrifyingly selfless" Lost Princess, inheritor of the bloodline of the gods. She has become both the lover of Sintan warlord Griffin and a key piece of his strategy to unite the three realms of Thalyria under a single ruler. But her powerful, sadistic mother, Andromeda, stands in their way at every turn. Bouchet treads gently as she develops the larger-than-life aspects of her setting, and godly support and oracular wisdom build dramatic tension around the idea of fate without falling into deus ex machina. Griffin's good intentions make his possessive alpha jealousy feel loving, Cat's sharp tongue and personal insecurities balance her magical powers, and the emotional complexity of the relationships among their fellow fighters supports a feeling of camaraderie that makes the fight scenes really work.
Unexpectedly raunchy, action-packed fun
This is a fun, easy read with suspense, sexy times and humour.
Not a fan!
I’m really not a fan of Griffin..I thought I’d give the second book a go to see if he gets any more tolerable but he doesn’t. The dynamic between him and Cat borders on abusive and I really don’t enjoy reading about it. He’s controlling. He takes his anger out on her. He’s manipulative.
I kept with this series after the first book because I liked Cat’s character, and the other men of the series but I don’t think I can even finish this one!
