Is Love Stronger Than Vengeance?

A Betrayal…

Everything Poppy has ever believed in is a lie, including the man she was falling in love with. Thrust among those who see her as a symbol of a monstrous kingdom, she barely knows who she is without the veil of the Maiden. But what she does know is that nothing is as dangerous to her as him. The Dark One. The Prince of Atlantia. He wants her to fight him, and that’s one order she’s more than happy to obey. He may have taken her, but he will never have her.

A Choice….

Casteel Da’Neer is known by many names and many faces. His lies are as seductive as his touch. His truths as sensual as his bite. Poppy knows better than to trust him. He needs her alive, healthy, and whole to achieve his goals. But he’s the only way for her to get what she wants—to find her brother Ian and see for herself if he has become a soulless Ascended. Working with Casteel instead of against him presents its own risks. He still tempts her with every breath, offering up all she’s ever wanted. Casteel has plans for her. Ones that could expose her to unimaginable pleasure and unfathomable pain. Plans that will force her to look beyond everything she thought she knew about herself—about him. Plans that could bind their lives together in unexpected ways that neither kingdom is prepared for. And she’s far too reckless, too hungry, to resist the temptation.

A Secret…

But unrest has grown in Atlantia as they await the return of their Prince. Whispers of war have become stronger, and Poppy is at the very heart of it all. The King wants to use her to send a message. The Descenters want her dead. The wolven are growing more unpredictable. And as her abilities to feel pain and emotion begin to grow and strengthen, the Atlantians start to fear her. Dark secrets are at play, ones steeped in the blood-drenched sins of two kingdoms that would do anything to keep the truth hidden. But when the earth begins to shake, and the skies start to bleed, it may already be too late.


  • Unexpected writing

    By swtthng
    Over and over I caught myself thinking of the approach this author took that felt modern and current- female forward vs old school tired. So fun and exciting to read!! Cannot wait for the 3rd book!!
  • Even more perfect!

    By Da Shitman
    The first book was perfect, yet this one was even better. My husband was mad at me the whole time I binge read these books because I refused to talk to him. I was filled with dread the closer I got to the end because I never wanted it to stop! It truly left me dumbstruck and wanting more immediately, it's going to be a real struggle waiting for April!

    The best book I ever read in a long time.
  • Amazing

    By HannahJane1212
    I loved this book. This is one of the few stories I have read that I started reading it all over again the second I finished it. Both the first and second book of this series are amazing. I can’t wait for the third book to come out.

  • I really wanted to like this but I didn’t

    By kkkkkhggggvbnnn
    I was honestly shocked at how much I felt this book fell short when it’s so well rated. The concepts aren’t unique unfortunately and the world building tends to distract me rather than add to the story. I really thought a lot more was going to happen in this book than what did happen, the first 1000 pages seem to drag on and on. There were many conversations that happened over and over as if they were happening for the first time - like the conversation about why Casteel wanted to get married quickly. I feel like a lot of people like this book cause of the sex but it can be placed at some really insensitive and bizarre times? I for one wouldn’t have sex while people are getting murdered around me. I think their banter is repetitive and the whole book just doesn’t seem to go anywhere until the last few hundred pages. I think this series had potential but it really needed to cut down some of the scenes that didn’t add anything to the story besides Casteel saying he was intrigued and Poppy saying she wanted to stab him.
  • Literally one of the best reads I have had I a long time!
