War brought them together. Love will tear them apart.

Princess Cleo of Mytica confronts violence for the first time in her life when a shocking murder sets her kingdom on a path to collapse. Once a privileged royal, Cleo must now summon the strength to survive in this new world and fight for her rightful place as Queen.

The King of Limeros’s son, Magnus, must plan each footstep with shrewd, sharp guile if he is to earn his powerful father’s trust, while his sister, Lucia, discovers a terrifying secret about her heritage that will change everything.

Rebellious Jonas lashes out against the forces of oppression that have kept his country cruelly impoverished—and finds himself the leader of a people’s revolution centuries in the making.

Witches, if found, are put to death, and Watchers, immortal beings who take the shape of hawks to visit the human world, have been almost entirely forgotten. A vicious power struggle quickly escalates to war, and these four young people collide against each other and the rise of elementia, the magic that can topple kingdoms and crown a ruler in the same day.

      I agree with all of you. My favorite characters are Cleo, Nic, and Amia. They are are funny but serious and stubborn, like me. Except Amia, of course.

        It's so good! I think it's more for teens, or even 11-year-olds. You should get it and read it!

          This book was amazing! It had so many completely different things happening with different characters at the same. But they all tied in together. So if one main character did something big, it would impact another main character greatly but the other main character would have never noticed! This book really shows that if you have to much hatred an revenge clouding your common sense than you could start terrible things that could impact 3 kingdoms greatly...
