Publisher Description

Thalia knows three things;

Her first name.

That she barely escaped the clutches of the Septori with the help of a mysterious stranger.

And that her run in with the Septori’s iron butterfly machine did something to her. It changed her into something neither fully human nor Denai.

Fearing her inner darkness and seeking answers to her past, Thalia finds refuge as a servant at the Citadel in Calandry, a school for the gifted Denai.

When strange powers awaken within her she is forced to pretend to be one of them and goes from being a servant to student overnight. Her life becomes even more complicated when the handsome stranger who saved her from the Septori becomes her new fighting instructor.

Thalia knows that the Septori are still looking for her, and they will stop at nothing to get her back.

Dead or alive.

Love her books!

I absolutely love every book I've read from this author so far! I preferred this one to Mina and her unfortunate ending with Brody but I still disliked this ending between Thaila and Joss. Can none of heroines get and keep a man?! Or will more be explained in the coming books? All in all, these books are wonderful and I would put rank them with Maximum Ride and The Hunger Games. I also tend to grade on a pass fail type of system. But still, read the books! Ttthhhheeyyyy'rrrrrrree grrrreat! As tony the tiger would say. And I can't wait for the sequels! Keep them coming!
