Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied around his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.
As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging in the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark.
So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group. Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.

I enjoyed this book way more than I thought I would and it helped to fill the void left by Shadow of the Fox. Very easy to read with a good writing flow, although some of the big plot twists for me were pretty obvious I still thoroughly enjoyed seeing how they panned out. The magic system in this book wasn’t anything I had seen before but some have compared it to Avatar as it is quite elemental based. It was interesting to see the characters learning and honing their abilities to help them in saving their kingdom, from invisibility to creating hurricanes and controlling bugs! The 4 main characters were very different and likable and I cared what happened to them. I was expecting a typical predictable happy ending for this but it definitely wasn’t! I will certainly be picking up the sequel for this whenever it releases. I had a lot of fun reading this and would highly recommend to fantasy fans.
