Publisher's Synopsis

"Wildly romantic, suspenseful, and filled with harrowing plot twists..." ?Booklist


The great Zhaon empire is in turmoil. The emperor is dead, and the crown prince has fallen to hidden schemes, leaving his most dangerous brother to assume the throne. The imperial court is seething, and whispers of war grow to shouts.

The once-vanquished kingdom of Khir marches again to regain their honor, the savage Tabrak raid the borders after ravaging the South, and assassins lurk in the shadows seeking imperial favor.

Komor Yala, her own position uncertain, finds shelter in marriage to the cunning Third Prince. But there is little safety in Zhaon. Death and destruction mount as a blood-drenched summer ends. The winner will claim an empire-if it is not turned to smoking ruins first.

The wheel of destiny is turning, and all will be caught under its weight...

Praise for the Hostage of Empire series:

"Intricate, elegant and sharp as a blade?sweeping political fantasy at its finest." ?Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne

"With a deliberate pace and fine attention to details of dress and custom, Emmett weaves a masterful tale of court intrigues." ?Booklist (starred review)
