When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive—an injured spy who threatens to steal her heart.

They escape their vicious captors and together embark on a perilous journey to save the land and to uncover the secrets of the Queen Who Sleeps.

The fates of two nations hang in the balance as Jasminda and Jack must choose between love and duty to fulfill their destinies and end the war.

It has been a while since I have read a new adult fantasy so I was really looking forward to reading this one. The book moved a little slow for me in the beginning but I really got into it around the 30% mark. I think the early part of the book really set the worldbuilding though. Jasminda was tough, I mean she had no choice but to be. She was also caring. Even though the people of Elsira treated her bad for the most part she still helped Jack. I really like the relationship between those two. I never would have guessed his secret. Jack was also a really good guy. I did pick up on the other thing about the Queen and the True Father. Overall, I really liked this one. I received an ARC from St. Martins Press but I plan to listen to the audiobook also upon release. I would recommend this one.
