From USA Today Bestselling Author Amelia Hutchins comes a tale of love, war, and betrayal.
A king who craves to possess her mind, body, and soul.
A council who has deemed her too dangerous to live.
And a fate she never asked for, but can’t escape.
What’s a girl to do?
Within the Nine Realms, deception runs deep.
War lingers on the horizon, as armies gather deeply within the shadows.
The land has chosen its hero, but war demands a heavy price—one Aria may not be prepared to pay.
Those she thought she could trust have deceived her.
The council has declared her the enemy.
Everything that can be taken from her has been wrenched from her grasp.
When everyone is pushing her to become the villain they claim her to be, will she be able to become the monster the realms need?
They created Aria to rule the Nine Realms, but now they fear she’s too dangerous and ruthlessly savage to live.
Will she allow them to guide her future, or will Aria blaze her own path and choose her own future?
Well-behaved women never make history.
But no one forgets the misbehaved woman with murderous intent, honed claws, and sharp teeth.
War may not be the only thing setting the world to ruin.
Are you brave enough to enter the Nine Realms?
There’s a queen rising, and in chaos, she’ll reign.
A note from the publisher.
This book is a true enemy to lover’s tale. It deals with death and adversity. It is merciless, savage, and a view of how broken things overcome against inconceivable odds.
The steam between these two burns the pages.
Knox is savagery in motion, and Aria is a chaotic beauty. So what happens when brutality and beauty collide? Aria and Knox burn so hot together that they may very well leave the Nine Realms in nothing more than ashes.
Nothing like it
Better than ACOTAR. I love this series and world building. I was pushed through so many emotions with Aria and Knox I wanted to scream and tear apart the world for her and he to be together. Also, I need a backstory on Greer asap!!
Soul consuming series
I have reread these books more than I’d like to admit. The storyline and the fantasy world Amelia created is one of a kind. Yes, lots of abuse, but if you don’t see all characters grow, learn and deepen their connections you are reading it wrong. Everything is indeed rising from the ashes of a beautiful chaos 🖤 10/10
