My name is Maia Graystone: rebel, terrorist, and . . . traitor.
Imprisoned in the Tower at the Archduchess’s mercy, awaiting certain execution, I spend every moment thinking of ways to escape so I can find Riser and fulfill the promise to my father.
When the perfect moment arises, I break free, only to discover the unthinkable—the rebels have branded me a traitor.
It gets worse. War looms, my friends have abandoned me, and Nicolai refuses to help find the Mercurian.
There’s only one way to change his mind and regain the rebels’ respect. I must fight in the ruthless Blood Courts, a violent, gladiatorial arena where only the strong survive. Only problem is, first I have to defeat the reigning champion.
Someone I once trusted with my heart.
Win and the entire rebel army is mine. Lose and the world burns.
Dare to enter the gritty world of Shadow Fall where tyrants rule, misfits reign, and anti-heroes are tasked with saving the world. If you like enemies-to-lovers romance, high-octane action, and epic themes of good versus evil, you’ll binge this rollercoaster of emotions late into the night!
Spoiler warning! Rant warning!
I had to go and look at reviews to see if I could continue with this series. I even debated reading the last chapter to see if that would give me the motivation to continue. But ultimately I am too angry to continue.
While most people probably like the direction that the author went I did not. It really angered me. After Maia escaped, she finds out that she is labeled a traitor by the rebels. Not only that but Riser supposedly erased her from his memory. Are you freaking kidding me? To me, that means everything she just suffered through was for nothing. Her friends abandon her and Riser completely erasers her and changed. A total personality flip.
Excuse me, but no. Everything I just finally connected within the first book is now thrown out the window. We had enemies to lovers only for them to turn back into enemies to lovers again. Are you kidding me!!! I have to relive them not being together and fighting attraction and all that new crap that’s in the way? Heck to the no! I ain’t doing it.
That is what has angered me. While other reviews liked the direction I did not. Not for me.
