Amira is a cursed assassin forced to serve her father, until she fails to kill Daindreth, imperial archduke and heir to the empire.
She expects death, but instead receives an arranged marriage to the man she tried to murder and a bargain—he will protect her from her curse if she will help free him of his own.
But time is short for them both. Amira soon learns that there are enemies that blades can’t touch and there are fates worse than death. Caught in a web of sorcery, intrigue, and her growing feelings for the archduke, the assassin must decide just how much she is willing to give to save the only man she’s ever loved.
