EMELINA FLORES, THE GIRL WHO KILLED THE PRINCESS, THE GIRL WHO DESTROYED LERA.

EMELINA FLORES, THE HERO. NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE IT.

A POWER THAT WILL DIVIDE THEM. A LOVE THAT WILL UNITE THEM.

Emelina and Olivia Flores might share the title of queen of Ruina, but they are far from allies. In fact, Olivia's all-consuming quest for vengeance has forced Em and a small faction of Ruined to defect from her completely.

Instead, Em turns to the kingdom of Lera, where Cas, the boy she loves, sits on the throne. With Cas, Em begins to negotiate a treaty that will unite their people and bring an end to decades of fighting. But words and promises won't stop blood and violence, and as Olivia's army of violent rebels grows stronger, Em realizes that war with her sister is inevitable.

With the fate of Ruina at stake, the coming battle will pit queen against queen, sister against sister. Loyalties will be tested, relationships will be sacrificed, and only one queen will survive.
