Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile kingdoms.
But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire - a dangerous gift for the future queen of a land where magic is forbidden.
Now Denna has to learn the ways of her new kingdom while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria's formidable warhorses before her coronation - and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine, sister of her betrothed.
When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, they discover there is more to one another than they thought - and soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.
But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms - and each other.

A lovely earnestly romantic fantasy romp.
Overall a fantastic book. The fantasy world is interesting and has egaging political and social drama. The friendship turned romance is handled well and the tension is a slow burn to a beautiful payoff.
Sweetly romantic and full of feel good moments.
Tons of political intriuge as cultures and Alliences clash.
Two great protagonists with unique viewpoints on the plot
A well structured and executed metaphor using the protagonists acceptance of her forbidden magic to parallel her coming out story.
is very gay
Towards the end the obstacles grow larger and the tension pays off beautifully.
Pacing issues towards the middle
Some characters are developed right before dying and the deaths are sometimes trivial.
Some characters are one note and do not meaningly impact the plot.
The fantasy names get a little wordy and they start to get confusing.
tone is not consistant during some key scenes.
Overall a phenomenal story that hit just the right spot for me. A fun gay fantasy adventure with likable characters. Would Recommend.
