Long ago, the world was destroyed by gods. Only nine cities were spared. Separated by vast wilderness teeming with monsters and unimaginable dangers, each city is now ruled by a guardian—royalty who feed on mortal pleasure.
Born with an intuition that never fails, Calista knows her talents are of great value to the power-hungry of the world, so she lives hidden as a courtesan of the Baron of Archwood. In exchange for his protection, she grants him information.
When her intuition leads her to save a traveling prince in dire trouble, the voice inside her blazes with warning—and promise. Today he’ll bring her joy. One day he'll be her doom.
When the Baron takes an interest in the traveling prince and the prince takes an interest in Calista, she becomes the prince’s temporary companion. But the city simmers with rebellion, and with knights and monsters at her city gates and a hungry prince in her bed, intuition may not be enough to keep her safe.
Calista must choose: follow her intuition to safety or follow her heart to her downfall.
Breathtaking suspense and scorching romance meet in this immersive new fantasy from a mega-bestselling force, Jennifer L. Armentrout.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A gifted young woman is thrust into the deadly path of the gods in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s fantasy epic. A lowborn human with a supernatural sense of intuition, Calista survived a terrifying childhood on the streets, eventually settling into the relatively safe life of a courtesan. But her powers won’t be ignored. When her intuition leads her to rescue the Hyhborn Prince Thorne—one of a race of godlike rulers—she’s pulled into the kind of danger she’s tried so hard to avoid. Armentrout flexes her skill for world-building, creating a universe for Calista that’s bursting with magic, violence, and searing sexual tension. We wanted to know everything we could about this strong heroine and her dangerous prince. Suspense builds as Calista senses that her fate is tied to Thorne…though things don’t usually end well when humans mix with gods. The first book in Armentrout’s Awakening series will have you giddy for the sequel.
Omg! Seriously I think Lux universe just got TRUMPED
What isn’t there in this book and having to wait will be excruciating!! This is definitely a repeat read from mystery to adventure to lots of steam and omg spice to so many twist…I can’t believe I have to wait. The character are just so skillfully created and the dynamic of this new reality is just perfect and captivating!
My favorite by her
Jennifer Armentrout writes great series, but I often get frustrated with the paragraphs upon paragraphs of her characters pondering the same things over and over. This book didn’t do that, and it was awesome. The story was interesting and well-paced. Yes it has similar aspects to some of her other books, but it was unique in that she created a brand new type of supernatural being. I loved it and can’t wait for the next book.
Such a waste of time. There was nothing I enjoyed about this book except it being over. A DNF for sure.
