Summary

Following your heart can be a crime.

A royal wedding is what most girls dream about. It means one celebration after another: balls, fireworks, and revelry until dawn. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement: that she agreed to marry the crown prince in exchange for Arin's freedom.

But can Kestrel trust Arin? Can she even trust herself? For Kestrel is becoming very good at deception. She's working as a spy in the court. If caught, she'll be exposed as a traitor to her country. Yet she can't help searching for a way to change her ruthless world... and she is close to uncovering a shocking secret.

This dazzling follow-up to The Winner's Curse reveals the high price of dangerous lies and untrustworthy alliances. The truth will come out, and when it does, Kestrel and Arin will learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

The filler middle book

Like many of this genre, this story is spread over three books and having listened to all three now, I can say with confidence: it didn't need to be. This book already felt like the filler middle book when I was listening to it and now having finished the story, this book feels pretty unnecessary apart from possibly two or three key moments which are needed for the next book. It's well written and well read, but ultimately fairly uneventful.
