In this epic debut fantasy by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Divine Rivals, an outcast finds herself bound to a disgraced lord and entangled in his plot to overthrow the king. Perfect for fans of Grave Mercy and Red Queen!
Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron. Growing up in Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her. While some are born with a talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she chose knowledge. However, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true: she is left without a patron.
Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, she reluctantly accepts. But there is much more to his story, for there is a dangerous plot to overthrow the king of Maevana—the rival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the throne.
With war brewing, Brienna must choose which side she will remain loyal to: passion or blood.

I have just finished reading this book and all I can say is wow! It can always be hard to find a good book to read one that will keep you captured, that will make you keep reading until the end.I would recommend this book to any reader that like a book with a strong female character, turns at every page, and a little bit of romance.
Mostly good but…
This book was really good for the most part. It was a bit slow in the beginning but once it picked up i was really enjoying it. I loved the plot and the characters. I would’ve rated it four stars if it wasn’t for the romance. It was a student-teacher romance which I was not a huge fan of. The book doesn’t really focus on the romance that much so it wasn’t totally unbearable to read. So I would recommend this book if you’re comfortable with that
Recommend this book
So good !!
