Synopsis: A fallen Empire. A forbidden royal romance. An ancient treaty with the Fae.

In a world tainted by greed and rebellion, death prowls the shadows of the once glorious Sun Empire, waiting to devour those who dare fight back.

Corvus, heir to the most powerful House, is a threat to the Emperor, despite being the dearest friend of Crown Princess Saphyr. When the Emperor forbids their friendship, Corvus forms an Alliance to overthrow him, until betrayal forces Corvus into exile.

After the lethal Queen of the Sirens emerges from the secret realm of Sirenibus, Corvus is tempted by an irresistible deal at a dangerous price. Caught up in a conspiracy and a war between light and darkness, can he and Saphyr save the people from a terrible destiny and restore the Empire to its former glory? Or will Corvus have to sacrifice more than he is willing to give? Will his life be enough, or will it also demand his soul?

Review: For the most part this was an ok read. The book had a great premise and I was immediately intrigued by it. The plot was fairly solid and I loved all of the world building the author did.

However, I felt like the character development was sorely lacking. You’re thrown into the story and not given time to figure anything out. The romance is also not convincing and I found myself bored with it after awhile.

Verdict: It was ok, but not for me. Maybe for you!
