Alynah wants to save her family, herself and her country – in that order. Falling in love with an assassin isn’t on her list.
Alynah is nothing but an overlord’s well-trained pawn, thrust into a game with only one rule: never betray the truth. With her chances of survival next to nothing, she plays the game she doesn’t want to play, obeys the rule she doesn’t want to obey, and makes allies she doesn’t trust as she fights for stakes she never wanted to risk.
Who has time for love when she’s losing everything else?
