The emperor has been assassinated and his heirs are now in danger. His successor, Kaden, is tucked away far from society where they believe him to be safe from attacks, but his brother, Valyn knows different. Someone has betrayed them and Valyn can trust no one with his secret. Nor can he go rescue Kaden immediately due to his own commitments. We are left with Adare's promise of revenge, the emperors unmarried daughter, and hoping her brothers are up to the task of running her beloved empire.
I enjoyed the first seven chapters and really look forward to the book. The chapters provided were filled with character introductions and preparing for what was to come. The royal family is not close, each had been sent to train for their own duties to the empire at a young age and will now have to trust the adults they have become to save the empire from a coup. I've already preordered my copy to finish the tale!
