Get ready for more magic in the dark, dazzling, action-packed sequel to Blood Rose Rebellion.
Sixteen-year-old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Binding--and the praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, are wreaking havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates have lost theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.
Anna thought the praetheria were on her side, grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas's blood sacrifice would bring peace, equality, and justice. She thought she'd help shape a new society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor.
But with the monarchy breathing down her neck and the praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun.
As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.
