Return to the world of The Bridge Kingdom in this sensuous fantasy full of romance and intrigue that is perfect for fans of From Blood and Ash and A Court of Silver Flames.
A soldier raised as heir to an empire, Zarrah is motivated by two truths. The first is that the Veliant family murdered her mother. And the second is that her pursuit of vengeance will put every last one of them in their graves.
The Endless War between Maridrina and Valcotta has raged for generations, leaving thousands of Zarrah’s people dead and countless more orphaned. So when she’s given command of the contested city of Nerastis, Zarrah is prepared to do whatever it takes to destroy the Maridrinian forces who oppose her. And to kill the Veliant prince who leads them.
Yet a chance encounter with an anonymous, and handsome, Maridrinian causes Zarrah to question whether the violence she’s perpetrated is justice or a crime. And as she continues to meet the nameless man each night, she finds common ground - and fiery passion - in his arms.
But when identities are revealed, Zarrah must decide whether to embrace a chance at peace...or march to the drums of war.

To understand this story you should first read the first two (The Bridge Kingdom and Traitor Queen) of this series because although we are following other characters here, the events are parallel to the events in The Traitor Queen. After we got to know both characters we finally get the story of Zarrah and Keris. Both characters are just from the war of Valcotta and Madrinah and both have tasks that are both not allowed to survive. Everything changes when the two get to know each other and fall in love. I liked Zarrah as a character even if she was a bit blind, especially when it came to her aunt, because it seemed as if she didn't see what she was looking at, and there were moments when she didn't like her attitude, but I still liked her as a character and that too she is a fighter. Keris, on the other hand, is different from what you would expect but when he meets Zarrah you only see the real me. As a character I liked him but here I sometimes found him too superficial, especially when it comes to his country and how he sees the people around him, I'm curious how he will react in the second part and what he will show of himself. The story was really good and I also liked that there was more romance in there and I really liked the two of them together. All in all, I found it good again, both romance and fantasy in there, even if they can't get to Lara and Aren for me, they were still an interesting couple and I'm curious what else awaits us with them.
