Publisher's Summary

Cyrene Strohm is a Queen's Affiliate, a high-ranking official of the court of Byern, with power and privilege to spare. But she's also a keeper of dangerous secrets: like the fact that she holds the heart of the King, and that she possesses magic in a world where magic no longer exists. Determined to discover what this means and how to use her newfound abilities, Cyrene sets off for the distant land of Eleysia, an island nation where Affiliates are strictly forbidden from entering. But the journey is perilous, and the destination may mean utter ruin, as Cyrene comes to learn that everything she's been told her whole life - about her court, her homeland, and even herself - are bound in a beautiful lie.

Eh

this one was not as good as the first one in my opinion. and why are we not talking about 'his' magic and that she should recognize she only wanted the brothers because she was bound to them? instead of feeling confused over which boy to pick she should be mad that he tricked her,that he sent creatures to kill her! I saw where the last book is all about him and I'm just kinda too annoyed with her about the whole thing to deal with them two just yet.
narrator is amazing, until you hear the breath after every sentence. then you can't unhear it...
