How can you move on with the future without surrendering the past?

When an escape attempt goes desperately awry, Elise and Will find themselves at the mercy of the very people who have imprisoned them all this time. Tensions sharpen, punishments are severe, and they soon discover what terrible things are required if they wish to survive.

But such wild spirits were never meant to be tamed.

While appearing to submit, the future princess still dreams of freedom. And as the day of her wedding approaches, those dreams begin to turn into something more.

With so many eyes upon her, can she maintain the illusion? Is the crown prince really such a monster, or is there more to him than meets the eye?

Time is running out. All that's left are choices.

But will she have the strength to decide?

  • The ending killed the series

    By Egans03
    So disappointed at the ending.
  • Mixed

    By Newavidreader
    Live the series. Hate the end of book 3. Won’t buy book 4.
  • Good but

    By AllyCorci
    The series was worth it but I wish that the prince and Elise would have changed the kingdom together. It would have made a more interesting plot than just the same thing over and over.
  • Very good series

    By Saucey Cher
    It always makes me mad when there are so many books in a series just for greed but I have really enjoyed the series up until this book. If the author would let Elise embrace her power over the Prince and her power as queen and start changing the world that way, it would have been a better book.
