Publisher's Summary

“What is the most powerful force in the world?” 

Beatrice Harrow was raised in seclusion, separated from the Read Kingdom and protected from the mysterious mechanisms of the other four races, but they are not as blind to her as she is to them. Even before she steps foot inside the Academy, they know her name and they know the truth about her birth. She is one of the Tainted: a mixed-breed creature with the blood of a monster, clinging to legitimacy by the genes of her human father. She is more beautiful, more powerful, and more despised than any other being in the Read Kingdom.

Her life was never going to be easy, but when fate throws her together with Cale, the troublemaking son of her father’s sworn enemy, and Hazen, the intimidating crown prince of the Read Kingdom, she quickly discovers that her problems haven’t even begun.  

In a world built on status, there are lines that can never be crossed.  

In a time of peace, it is inevitable that war will whisper on the wind once again.  

In a land of mixed blood, a Tainted Creature can either be killed … or they can be recruited.

Wonderful

I absolutely LOVE this narrator!! I’ve never read/listened to a book like this. It was a great story with wonderful characters. I cannot wait for the second one to come out on audio.

Better than I thought

First off I really loved this narrator! From the start I was immediately immersed into Bea’s everyday life and enjoyed her as a character. I didn’t want to pause or stop listening to the story and was sad when it ended and then I saw it’s part of a duo-logy. I cannot wait for the second book to be put on audibl. Although I did spoil myself by reading those reviews :/ my fault anyway good read. You won’t be disappointed.

unexpectedly dark but riveting

This book has much of what I love about Jane Washingtons work. Lovable protagonist, interesting potential lovers and a intriguing world for the characters to explore.

This book also has some dark themes I was not expecting. There is a clear theme so sexual abuse in this book in many forms. The book handled the subject well imho.

I'd recommend this book overall however. I don't think I put it down once.

Good read!

I've been on this super huge "Fae world" book kick and this was a really unique and good read. I read the second one as well and loved it..cool story line and love the characters. Suspense, romance, magic, and action all packed into one and delivered through mysterious characters with big secrets. It leaves you aching to know what's going to happen next.

I am such a fan of all her book and the other tiles she has co-wrote. I can’t wait until the next audio book is released!!
