A young sorceress’ entire life has been shaped to destroy the empire controlling her world. She could change history. But everything she thinks she knows is a lie.

At seventeen, Ileni lost her magical power and was exiled to the hidden caves of the assassins. She never thought she would survive long. But she discovered she was always meant to end up, powerless, in the caves as part of an elder sorcerer’s plan to destroy the evil Empire they’d battled so long. Except that Ileni is not an assassin, and she doesn’t want to be a weapon. And, after everything, she’s not even sure she knows the truth. Now, at the very heart of the Empire—its academy for sorcerers—the truth is what she seeks. What she finds challenges every belief she holds dear—and it threatens her fledgling romance with the young master of assassins. Leah Cypess spins an intricate and beautiful conclusion to Ileni’s story that started in Death Sworn. In the end, it may not be the epic decisions that bring down an empire, but the small ones that pierce the heart.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In this thrilling sequel to Death Sworn, Ileni has been separated from the dreamy and dark-eyed assassin Sorin in order to fulfill her destiny. In the midst of dangerous spell weavers, the formerly powerful sorceress has returned to the Empire that exiled her to infiltrate the Imperial Academy…Appealing to fans of Robin LaFevers’s His Fair Assassin series and Kristin Cashore’s Graceling, there is some violence but nothing too graphic. This novel will especially be appreciated by readers who enjoyed Cypess’ previous volumes.”

    School Library Journal

  • “A sorceress without magic navigates lies, treachery, and despair in this thoughtful conclusion to the fantasy duology that began with Death Sworn…She longs for righteous certainty in a noble cause, aches to achieve a heroic destiny through some great good deed, but she’s confronted on every side with ambiguity, complexity, and nothing but bad options. Yet rather than being crushed by her shattered ideals, Ileni embraces compromise and learns to reach for the grace of tiny victories. Somber and disquieting but alight with flickers of hope.”
