Sixteen year-old Breena Perdit has spent her life as a barmaid, innocent to her father’s past and happily free from the Elemental gifts that would condemn her to a life in the Egrian King’s army. Until the day that three Elemental soldiers recognize her father as a traitor to the throne and Bree’s father is thrown in jail—along with the secrets from his last mission as the King’s assassin. Secrets that could help the King win a war. Secrets he refuses to share.
Desperate to escape before the King’s capricious whims prove her and her father’s downfall, Bree bargains with him: information for their lives. It’s a good trade. And she has faith she’ll get them both out of the King’s grasp with time.
But that was before the discovery that she’s the weapon the King’s been waiting for in his war.
Now, time is running out. To save her father’s life and understand her own, Bree must unravel the knot of her father’s past before the King takes his life– and uses her to bring a nation to its knees.
I found this story a little bit hard to get into to start with but after a couple of chapters the story turned out good . I mean this book was good , its not the normal story line I follow but it will keep you intrigued to find out what is going to happen next . Bree is in a world of magic and elementals . This book reminds me of a harry potter mixed with a game of thrones type story line . I would highly recommend this book to any one who enjoys that type of story line. The characters are strong and you seem to fall in love with them right away
