About the Book

When news arrives that Emperor Daican has been in contact with his chief war strategist, it
signals potential doom for the country of Samara. Determined to intervene, the resistance in
Landale, headed by Lady Anne, embark on a covert mission in hopes of unearthing further
information. However, a shocking discovery leads to complications no one could have foreseen.

Armed with their newfound knowledge, they set out for Samara to warn the king. War is
inevitable, and they must face two desperate battles—one on the walls of Samara’s great
stronghold, and the other on the battlefield of Jace’s heart, where victory might only be
achievable through great sacrifice.

“I think she’s in love with you.”
Kaden shot Trev a dark look in answer to his amused tone and grin. Though Jace tried, he
couldn’t hold back his own amusement, even if it was at Kaden’s expense. He was just glad he
wasn’t the one Tina had set her sights on. He wasn’t equipped to handle that awkward situation.
Kaden grumbled under his breath and sat down hard on his bed, where he flopped back
against the pillow.
Aaron leaned casually against the doorframe. “She’s quite a talker.”
Kaden scrubbed his hands over his face and released a low groan. “If I have to hide in this
room the whole time we’re here, I’ll lose my mind.”
“Not as fast as you would out there.” Aaron gestured over his shoulder, earning a chorus of
Grabbing the pillow, Kaden chucked it at him. “A lot of help you are.”
As Aaron bent down for it, Rayad returned to the room from meeting with Anne and Kyrin.
The mood changed immediately, and Jace straightened. He needed to know about Kyrin. He
hadn’t slept well last night, not knowing for sure if she was safe. How could he protect her if he
couldn’t even be on the same floor as her?

My thoughts: I was thrilled to have the chance to review this title, as I have been wanting to read Jaye's stories for a while now and just haven't made the time. It seems like having a deadline, like reviewing the story, is the best way for me to make the time.;)
Once I actually had the title, though, I did worry about it being the third book in the series, with my not having read the two previous stories. While I know it would of made me appreciate this book all the more, Jaye does a wonderful job of telling the readers just enough of the previous books to keep one from getting lost, while still making you want to go back and read the previous books to know more.
I fell in love with this story from the get go! The characters are wonderful and I love the depth of the message of God's love. The story is in the fantasy genre and is set in an interesting world of rebellion and dragons. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
