Celaena Sardothien has embraced her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen.
But before she can reclaim her throne, she must fight. She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die for her. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison.
And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen’s triumphant return. Everyone Aelin loves has been taken from her. Everything she holds dear is in danger.
But she has the heart of a queen – and that heart beats for vengeance.
