Publisher's Summary

Grave Mercy meets Red Queen in this epic debut fantasy, inspired by Renaissance France, about an outcast who finds herself bound to a disgraced lord and entangled in his plot to overthrow the current king.
Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron. Growing up in Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her. While some are born with a talent for one of the five passions - art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge - Brienna struggled to find hers until she chose knowledge. However, Brienna's greatest fear comes true - she is left without a patron.
Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, she reluctantly accepts. But there is much more to his story, for there is a dangerous plot to overthrow the king of Maevana - the rival kingdom of Valenia - and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the throne. And others are involved - some closer to Brienna than she realizes.
And now, with war brewing, Brienna must choose which side she will remain loyal to: passion or blood.

captivating story with amazing narrator

at first I was a little hesitant in this story. But as the story progressed I found myself wanting to listen more and more. I am excited to see if there will be another book although I'm happy with how it ended.

Marvelous

I Love this book! The bonds of Sisterhood and loyalty are wonderful! These young women all discovering who they are and finding their paths, their friendships and bonds help each other rise in their own discovery. Iron sharpens Iron!

This story drew me in from the beginning. As Brienna accepts the challenges laid before her and has difficult decisions to make, I found myself totally rallying for her! Cheering for her as she finds her strength and discovers herself!

It's totally Marvelous!!
