Sixteen-year-old Eva is a princess, born with the magick of blood and marrow—a dark and terrible magick that hasn’t been seen for generations in the vibrant but fractured country of Myre. Its last known practitioner was Queen Raina, who toppled the native khimaer royalty and massacred thousands, including her own sister, eight generations ago, thus beginning the Rival Heir tradition. Living in Raina’s long and dark shadow, Eva must now face her older sister, Isa, in a battle to the death if she hopes to ascend to the Ivory Throne—because in the Queendom of Myre, only the strongest, most ruthless rulers survive.

When Eva is attacked by an assassin just weeks before the battle with her sister, she discovers there is more to the attempt on her life than meets the eye—and it isn’t just her sister who wants to see her dead.

The Queendom of Myre is steeped in a tradition of blood. Every generation, a pair of rival heirs must battle to the death for the Ivory Throne. Sixteen-year-old Eva has lived most of her life with her father away from Myre, and in pursuit of a teacher who can help her master her magick of marrow and blood—a magick that has not been seen for generations since Queen Raina destroyed the royal line of the native khimaer and killed her own sister, beginning the tradition of Rival Heirs. When Eva is attacked by an assassin weeks before her battle with her sister, Isa, she realizes that the time has come for action. Outmatched and untrained, Eva turns to an ancient fey instructor, a secret prince, and a small group of faithful friends for guidance and aid in this fast-paced magical adventure. Will she have what it takes to defend herself against her sister and the dark forces conspiring against her? Filled with mythical creatures, ancient traditions, sibling rivalries, political intrigue, and epic world-building, this book stands out as a masterful adventure. Hand it to fans of Kendare Blake’s Three Dark Crowns series or those looking for a more diverse response to Game of Thrones.
