“Run.” The soft whisper in her ear cut through the pitch-black hiding place. After the nightmare she had just endured, he was the only person she could still trust.

She waited. The silence surrounded her like a heavy blanket.

“Run!” he shouted, and they took off in opposite directions.

Orphaned, mistreated, and misunderstood, Moira has always dreamed of building a new life in the royal city. But when she finally arrives, her ambition gets the better of her. And little orphan Moira becomes a person she never imagined.

Isobail has never been ambitious. She wants nothing more than the simple life she’s always enjoyed. But when she’s recruited to work in the royal city, she finds her dreams changing.

This medieval tale of secrets, mistaken identities, romance, and long-sought redemption is sure to captivate readers. With a compelling story and characters that will keep you guessing, this book will change how you feel about villains and heroines, loss and love.

My Review

Wow!  I love being surprised by books, and this book had something new at every turn.  I didn't connect with Moira very much, every move she made worried me.  But, that was her life.  She was mistreated her whole life and hadn't learned how to trust anyone.  Her choice is always to run away.  Don't get me wrong, I felt sorry for her with all she had to endure, but she wasn't necessary likable.  But, that is what I liked most about this book.  Even though Moira's choices weren't the best, I still cared about her and those she meets along the way, especially Brian.  What a great guy.  I LOVED how time passed in this book, and I especially loved Isobail.  I would have loved a whole book on her.  The book has twists on every page that were very unexpected, but very cool!

4 out of 5 stars.  The ending is perfect for this story, loved it!
