Nothing is as it seems.
Frey's life is a lie. She doesn't remember being bound from magic. She didn't intend to discover this dangerous secret, to get entangled in Council business. But she did.
And now she's on the run.
With the aid of a stranger, she discovers a world beyond the elves who bound her. But it's a world of shadows and dark magic, a world she's been warned not to trust. The farther she strays, the more she finds a forgotten past. As she fights to reclaim her true identity, Council trackers hunt her down.
If they find her, she will burn.
The stranger offers her a way out, but it's a path of no return. How do you know who to believe when you don't even know who you are?

It’s very good but needs to be better
Gotten into this book but part of me when I was reading it made me feel like I was somewhat in a stand still.
Light and ineffrctive
Interesting concept of magic and redemption, told in a disjointed patchwork of romance, dreams, fighting, and a journey (of course) North.
The writing is unfortunately weak, and the characters beyond the protagonist are cardboard. I enjoyed the story far more than the book.
Do not torture yourself with this.
If you prefer your main character to have depth, do more than sleep, and the book to have a distinguishable plot, do not read this book.
The main character sleeps through most of the book. When she manages to stay awake, she must go on the run for...reasons. When they ride horses, they gallop everywhere for hours on end (horses don’t work that way). After sleeping some more, she, never having held a sword before, practices once with a sword against a master swordsman and not only holds her own but impresses him. Then she sleeps some more. She gathers a ragtag crew who are loyal to her for some reason, although she does nothing to earn it. Then she sleeps some more. She finds out a little about her history. She sleeps some more. Suddenly, she’s queen. The book ends.
Yes. It is literally that bad.
