(Book 2 in the fantasy series The Crowns) The land of Escarral has changed in the past year for Alyvia with her mother now sitting on the throne. Lyv's mission in infiltrating the Fae land of Dalcaine has finally come. Now, in the capital city of Ayveri, she and her oath-sworn guardsmen and friend Gideon must find a way into the lives of the royal family and, most importantly, closer to Jai, the Crown Prince. With her magic finally free and stronger than before, it doesn't take long for her to attract the attention of the prince...but the wrong one. In the Fae land, Lyv's past, both recent and distant, are quick to catch up with her. And with an impending invasion of Escarrali forces, Lyv must be careful of the bonds she forms and help save a land that is more important to her than she ever knew before.
