Summary

What happens when your rumored name destroys your life? When the very runes engraved on your skin since birth are a death sentence? 

Evie doesn't remember a life before she was on the streets, a life before thieving to live and killing to stay alive. When a royal family she didn't know anything about goes missing, Evie finds herself thrown into the royal court of the protectors, and they demand her help. Help in exchange for a chance at freedom and the name that's haunted her, forgotten. A name she can’t even read, a name she doesn’t understand. 

But with three Royal protectors tasked with helping her, her demon ex, who is literally from hell, stalking her...will Evie ever be free?

More than just a chick-lit

Evie is a character I found I could admire, despite her obvious over-active glands. There's a good mystery involved with her origins, that is only partially revealed by story's ending - a good strategy to get the next book in the series. I found the narrators to be good, although more distinction between the male voices would help. A couple of things I found less than good which made me downgrade the book:
1. The rushed ending. A lot happens in the last 5-10 mins without much explanation. For example, the male characters are left to die but all we are told is that they slipped their bonds - it's a bit weak to my mind. Also, they rescue Evie's ward, again without explanation, from a well guarded confinement. Another 30 mins prose would have helped here, I think.
2. Fairly liberal use of the "f" word. There are a host of good stories out there that don't resort to "spicing" the dialogue up with this crudity. I don't believe this story would be any the less without this word.
Despite these and similar misgivings, I will be getting the next book in the series.
