As court intrigue swirls, a young woman faces three possible fates in this fantasy novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of Through a Dark Glass.
Olivia Géroux knows her king is reluctant to marry her, regardless of what negotiations have been arranged. But she never expected to find handsome, arrogant King Rowan obsessed with his stepsister, Princess Ashton, instead. When she overhears her greatest ally plotting to murder the princess, Olivia must act quickly—but how? As the assassin hunts his prey, a magic mirror appears to show Olivia the three paths before her: 1.) If she hesitates, the princess will die—and she will become queen; 2.) If she calls for help, she will gain great power—at the cost of her own happiness; 3.) If she runs to stop the murder herself, she will know love and contentment—but her whole country will suffer.
As Olivia lives out each path, fighting to protect her country, her friends and her heart, her wits and courage are tested to their limits. And deciding which path to follow will be far from easy.
