Maea is trapped at court, controlled by her foster mother who wants to use Maea's power to see into the future for her own gain. At court, secrets and betrayal are common fare and Maea's powers give anyone who controls her the advantage. With no one to trust, she can only rely on herself to break the curse. When she meets the charming prince Adair, she thinks he is just another courtier intent on using her. His reputation as a rogue proceeds him, and she has no intention of being his next conquest. But his offer to help her break the curse is too good to be passed up.
Together they uncover a plot that stretches back centuries and centers on Maea's family. Her quest has thrust Maea into the middle of a struggle for thrones. If she chooses the wrong side, she just may lose her head. With lives on the line, Maea must use her powers to find who to trust before it is too late.

3.45/5 Decent start to a much wider tale
Summary: A girl gets visions of the future and finds herself at the center of dangerous political games.
• No ending. The end is more like the ent of Act 1. Large portions of the story are therefore unresolved.
• Characters are okay. Maea's powers are cool. I loved Princess Sabine.
• Plot kind of meandered. The beginning didn't make much sense. Johai and the lady stole her memories? Why?
• The thing with the handsome prince didn't seem to make much sense either. One second she's appalled by his casual sex with a lady during a party. And the next she's inextricably attracted to him.
• The end twist was decently handled.
Conclusion: The beginning of a much longer tale that doesn't really hold up on its own, but if you're willing to read the whole trilogy, it offers a lot of magic and political intrigue.
*I received a free copy of the audio version, please excuse the spelling. I chose to review the book.

This is book 1 in a trilogy and cannot be read as a standalone. There are many questions left unanswered at the end of Book 1. At parts I found the story slow and the characters weak. The political intrigue however is good. The narrration overall was okay but monotone at parts. Overall I found it to be an ok read
