Their forbidden faith and ties to the Resistance could devastate their family a second time. Survival depends on obedience, but freedom beckons. How far does he dare go to resist the king and his Blades? No matter what Leith chooses, one thing is certain. Someone will die.

I totally love all of Tricia Mingerink's books. Her series was so fun to read, and I loved all of the characters. It was so cool to watch them overcome stuff in their story, and it encouraged me in different ways as well. I hope you will check her books out as they are really good.
