Set in an ancient river Kingdom, Mia Rose seeks to avenge her mother by killing Gwyrach: women who can manipulate flesh, bones, breath, and blood and have been branded as exceptionally dangerous. Aside from her father, the only person who Mia truly cares for is her younger sister, Angie. But when her father arranges an unexpected marriage between Mia and Prince Quin that turns into a violent disaster, Mia discovers the magic she's sworn to destroy is the very one she possesses. Barton expertly writes a magical story that puts a spotlight on female empowerment, the importance of consent, and the strong bonds of sisterhood all while keeping the reader on an intriguing, fantastical adventure.
