    Summary

    “You might make me your wife, but I cannot love you,” Alina tells him, tone as burning as the Fjerdan frost, the words torn straight from the smoking ashes the loss of her childhood love left behind in her heart. And yet, despite all of her biting contempt, the statement still makes something twinge in her chest. Distant remains from a naïve, young mapmaker entranced with the attractive older man pulling her in like a spider into his web of lies. “I won’t. Ever.”

    “Oh, Alina,” he says, a soft chuckle vibrating from his chest, his wretched, beautiful face looking at her with such belittlement that it makes her blood boil even hotter. “Little pet. Who said anything about love?”

    Summary

    Alina Starkov expected to wake up on a ship sailing across the True Sea, one that would take her far from Ravka, far from the Darkling and his mad crusade. Instead, she awoke in Os Alta to a devastating truth: the war was won nearly a century ago, her first love was dead, and she remembered nothing.

    Not even that, as part of her surrender, she agreed to a political marriage.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Don’t start this story if you want to sleep! A sweeping epic taking place on the precipice of the Darkling and Alina’s 100 year rule. Amnesia, monsters and a world that is so vividly written that you’ll never want to read.
    (And of course there is a Darkling just trying to woo his wife for his own purposes.)
