Alivia's father left her a letter before he died, begging her to stay away from the king and the royals. But it was a plea made in vain. She never could have run from this life, not when she might be Cyrus' resurrected queen. The king has arrived in Silent Bend and with him, he brought the end to Alivia's mortal life.
Uncontrollable bloodlust and an ever-shifting world rule her nights now. These twisted politics are deadly enough, but now her heart is the newest battleground. There's no hiding from the one who hates everything she was born to, a spy who embraces everything she's become, and a king who vies for someone she may soon remember.
The games have begun. The House of Conrath is growing. Blood will be shed, the bodies will fall. Alliances will be tested and old enemies look like harmless children compared to the new ones rising from the shadows.
