“Hope was a dangerous thing. It could

consume every dream and make them take flight, becoming wild daydreams in one’s

heart and mind. Or hope could incinerate everything you thought you knew,

burning you down to your core, leaving you raw and exposed for the world.”

Emory Fae has only known one thing—life
at The Academy, a school for those who have special abilities. Following in her

parents’ footsteps, the pressure to uphold their dream falls on her and one of

her best friends—Adair Stratton. An outcast and feared by most, Adair longs to

break away from the expectations dictating his future. With whispers of dark

magic spreading across Kiero, Adair starts to doubt The Academy is all it


An unexpected visit ignites new tensions
as the roguish king from across the Black Sea, Tadeas Maher of the Shattered

Isles, and his heir, Marquis Maher, sail to Kiero. Notorious for their pirating

and wrath, for the first time in years, they demand the Faes listen to their

proposition for a new treaty. Caught in the middle of politics, Adair and

Emory, with the help of their best friends Brokk and Memphis, search for the

one thing that matters the most—the truth.

at The Academy as Emory Fae rises as heir.

This was a captivating read!

I was first drawn in by the cover, so pretty! The world is intricate and fun to get lost in! We start out with a bit of background on Emorys parents and the political rift going on. Then flash forward to Emory at the Academy, a school for those with special abilities. I really liked all the characters in this and it was enjoyable watching their growth as the story progressed. I wasnt the biggest fan of the romance part though. I just didnt feel the click between the 2🤷‍♀️

There is plenty of action, some romance, cool magic, and fun fantasy that make an enjoyable read. Overall, I liked the book and will be looking out for the next in the series.
