On her eighteenth birthday, Princess Evelayn of Eadrolan, the Light Kingdom, can finally access the full range of her magical powers. The light looks brighter, the air is sharper, and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless.
But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn onto the throne much sooner than she expected.
In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shapeshift, and rely on the alluring Lord Tanvir. But not everyone is what they seem, and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price.

Why I’m excited for this book:

First of all this book was inspired by my second all time favourite ballet: Swan Lake. I also love Sara B. Larson and her writing, and THAT COVER!!!!! But this seems like an amazing young adult fantasy with some political intrigue which seems right up my alley. I’m interested in seeing how Swan Lake comes into the book and how much will it involve. Is it also going to include the black Swan Odile? Odette is obviously Evelayn. I also love the names that are being used in the book, they all see so lyrical when said aloud. Basically this is one of my most anticipated books of the year and if you haven’t pre-ordered it already like I have then you need to go do that right now!
