There is a new king on the throne of Tildor.
Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, Cadet Renee de Winter fights to maintain her spot as an elite soldier in training—with no help from her instructor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty. But when an underground crime lord goes too far, Renee and her best friend Alec are thrust into a world rife with crime and conspiracy, struggling between what they want, what is legal, and what is right.
A gritty, complex debut from a powerful new voice—not to be missed.
“A wild, energetic novel that proves girls CAN be warriors while still being true to themselves.”
—Sarah Dessen, author of The Moon and More
