An unputdownable romantasy for fans of international hits such as Sarah J. Mass’ Throne of Glass and A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik.
A mira Shawn knows what it takes to be a member of the Order: obedience, discipline and ruthlessness. In her world, monsters don’t just exist in fairy tales, they live on the Otherside, the magical realm beyond the portals. If she wants to become a guard worthy of the Ocaso institute, Amira must learn to control her feelings, especially now that she’s been paired up with the irritating Ezra Falco. Nevertheless, on their first mission to the Otherside, her emotions get the better of her, and she finds herself stranded in the Unknown.
Her only hope of survival is by making a deal with Vanyr, a mysterious and beguiling demon. He will help her escape, so long as she accompanies him on a dark, labyrinthine journey that will make her question everything she thought she knew about the Otherside, the Order and herself.
With a delicate, agile and addictive prose, Keiz Noyers presents a fast-paced plot in which risky missions and deadly trials are combined with simmering sexual tension, love and friendship.
