Frey’s life is a lie. She doesn’t remember being bound from magic. She didn’t intend to get entangled in Council business.

But she did.

And now she’s on the run. As the Council trackers pursue her, Frey discovers a world beyond their lies. With the aid of a stranger, she fights to reclaim her true identity before the others hunt her down. If they find her, she will burn.


Frey is an elf, but she is an outsider. She can’t do magic like the others. One day she does something bad and is then on the run with the help of Chevelle and a few others.

I liked the story but there were a few plot holes I’m not sure of yet. They might be addressed in the next book which I will have to put in my ever growing TBR pile.

Other than that, I wasn’t a big fan of Frey always having a short temper. Only because it reminded me a bit like me. But not the point. My mind is still processing all that I have read. I’m not fully sure how I feel about Frey. At first I wasn’t the biggest fan of Chevelle but now that I have reached the ending some things have been made clear. Not all which I hope is addressed in the next book.
