From a NY Times bestselling author comes the story of one young woman’s fight for survival in a world where love is the ultimate sin.
Raised in the Commonwealth, where citizens live and die by the code of the Seven Sins, Eva sees the Bellators of Light, the Commonwealth’s executioners, as conscienceless killers.
Devastated to be chosen as the first female bellator, she’s gifted at the very role she abhors…no thanks to Ari, her dismissive, impossible mentor. Ari’s indifference conceals a dangerous secret: He’s loved Eva since they were children. When she falls for him too, they should avoid each other at all costs: to love is to die.
Then they uncover a secret that could overturn the Commonwealth, and Eva must choose: Turn her back on Ari, and remain loyal to the only home she’s ever known—or risk everything on the slim hope of freedom, and stake her life on the boy she’s come to love.
