    • Abstract:
      Summary: In the Cyrilian Empire, the gifts Affinites use to control the world are unnatural and dangerous. Anastacya Mikhailov, the crown princess, has a secret and deadly Affinity to blood; it is her curse, and the reason she has lived her life behind palace walls. When Ana's father, the emperor, is murdered, her world is shattered. Framed as his killer, Ana must flee the palace to save her life. To clear her name, she must find her father's murderer on her own. Corruption rules the land, and a conspiracy that threatens the balance of Ana's world is at work. Ramson Quicktongue is the only person corrupt enough to help Ana get to the core of the conspiracy.

Booklist Reviews 2020 February #1

In a world where special abilities—or Affinities—are often feared, the Cyrilian Empire's Crown Princess Anastacya Mikhailov's ability to control blood leads her father to keep her hidden inside the palace. After Ana is framed for his murder, she must flee and pursue the killer in order to clear her name. This search leads her to con man Ramson Quicktongue, who takes Ana into the hidden worlds of her Empire, where Affinites are trafficked for their abilities and forced into contracts and where those who Ana thought were supposed to provide justice are instead part of a much deeper corruption. With chapters written from both Ana's and Ramson's perspectives and filled with action, sorrow, and suspense, Zhao's debut is sure to keep readers turning pages. Fantasy lovers will appreciate the rich world building, as well as the detailed character backstories that unravel as the story unfolds. Perfect for fans of Amy Tintera or Sarah J. Maas, but readers should prepare for plenty of heartbreak. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
