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. Download and start listening now!
