The stakes of the war have never been higher.
But what will be the cost to win?
Ashe knows loss, knows sacrifice and pain. Her allies are scattered and too many lie dead. The Blood are stronger than ever and more connected than she could have imagined.
But the worst is yet to come. The war has taken so many people she loves.
Now it just might take everyone who's left.
Life on the run hasn't been easy, but so far Ashe has survived. But now Carter has ordered her to leave the Hunters and find her family's people - an order she can't refuse no matter how much she wants to stay. Leaving will bring her into an unknown world, however - a world of new enemies and old prejudices that will demand more than she can imagine, at a cost higher than she'll ever want to pay.
