Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

After surviving the chaotic battle that erupted after Lo and the Bosha clan attacked, now Mya is looking ahead to her future with Kol. All the things that once felt so uncertain are finally falling into place. But the same night as Kol and Mya’s betrothal announcement, Mya’s brother Chev reveals his plan to marry his youngest sister Lees to his friend Morsk. The only way to avoid this terrible turn of events, Morsk informs Mya when he corners her later, is for Mya to take Lees’ place and marry him herself.

Refusing to marry anyone other than her beloved, and in an effort to protect her sister, Mya runs away to a secret island with Lees. And though it seems like the safest place to hide until things back home blow over, Mya soon realizes she’s been followed. Lurking deep in the re-cesses of this dangerous place are rivals from Mya’s past whose thirst for revenge exceeds all reason.

With the lives of her loved ones on the line, Mya must make a move before the enemies of her past become the undoing of her future.

Mya struggles with her feelings for Kol as their betrothal draws near. He would do anything just to be with her and make her happy but clan legacy could threaten that very happiness. Her brother can't have children of his own and it falls on her sister Lees to be his successor. Faced with the choice of saving her sister from an unwanted marriage, they find themselves on a journey that will come with a price higher than their freedom.

This book was full of death, revenge and reconciliation. I find that I like Mya better in this book because she seemed more human and less cold and unfeeling. I'm conflicted about the romance aspect as it
seemed just out of reach. There was so much figuring and chaos that it gets buried in it all. Overall, I like the story and how the world of the clans unfolds. This book would be good for someone that wants something about family, loss and love.
