The most wanted rebel returns in Zoraida Cordova's gripping conclusion to the Hollow Crown duology.
For years, she was wielded as a weapon. Now it's her time to fight back.
Reeling from betrayal at the hands of the Whispers, Renata has few options and fewer allies. Reluctantly, she agrees to join forces with Prince Castian, her most infuriating and intriguing enemy. Their goals: find the fabled Knife of Memory, kill the ruthless King Fernando, and bring peace to the nation.
Together, Renata and Castian have a chance to save everything, if only they can set aside their complex and intense feelings for each other. Renata's heart may still beat for Dez, but as the danger of their quest increases, so does her attraction to Castian.
With the king's forces on their heels at every turn, there is little room for mistakes. A dark, twisted history lies behind the elusive weapon, and the fate of the kingdom is held in the balance. Still, the greatest danger is within Renata - the Gray, her fortress of stolen memories, has begun to crumble, threatening her grip on reality. She'll have to control her magics, her mind, and her heart to unlock her power and protect the Moria people once and for all.
In this thrilling conclusion to the Hollow Crown duology, Zoraida Cordova weaves an epic finale brimming with adventure, romance, and justice.
