From the New York Times bestselling author of Sword of the Seven Sins comes the sequel with "heart-stopping action, breathtaking characters, high stakes, and a thrilling story."
What if the victory you've been fighting for is doomed to break your heart?
Rogue bellators Eva Marteinn and Ari Westergaard have escaped the restrictive world of the Commonwealth, and would like nothing more than to leave it behind forever. But for Eva in particular, it's not that simple. She is the weapon the Commonwealth wants—and they'll stop at nothing to get her back.
For years, Ari has seen Eva as his temptation and his secret, his virtue and his sin. Now that they're finally free, he wants what he's been craving—to start a new life with her…together.
But Eva is keeping a devastating secret of her own: the very victory the two of them have been fighting for is doomed to break both their hearts. Now she faces an impossible decision—be the face of the revolution she's dedicated her life to fueling, and abandon the boy she loves…or sacrifice everything she's fought for to stand by his side.
