Win the trials, lose those I love—or fail and save them all.
I barely survived my first trials. Now the stakes have been raised. The queen imprisoned my only family to control me after I defied her.
I’d hoped my father, the king, would become an ally, but he won’t dare betray the queen. Luckily, it turns out I’m not the only one who wants to see her fall. I’m fighting on all fronts, trying to stay alive through the trials while also joining the rebellion’s fight.
As a further complication, the pull I feel toward Rush is becoming harder to resist. The bond between us seems to be growing, but his allegiance to the queen persists. I’m not the only one she has leverage over.
Each trial grows more dangerous while the queen only appears more and more untouchable. She thinks she’s on top and has already won. She forgot those on top have the farthest to fall. I’m determined to reveal to the mirror world who—and what—she really is.
I will be her downfall.
