Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Locked in a coffin-like darkness, there is nothing to distract me from my memories of killing Reyad. He deserved to die—but according to the law, so do I. Here in Ixia, the punishment for murder is death. And now I wait for the hangman's noose.

Review:

"Snyder's riveting fantasy....is one of those rare books that will keep readers dreaming long after they've read it." - Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)

Synopsis:

After she is given a reprieve from her death sentence, Yelena faces mounting disasters as rebels plot to seize Ixia, her life is once again threatened, and the chief of security is attempting to poison her. Reprint.
