Listeners will be forced to confront impossible decisions in Joanna Hathaway's Dark of the West, a breathtaking YA fantasy audiobook debut.Aurelia Isendare is a princess of a small kingdom in the North, raised in privilege but shielded from politics as her brother prepares to step up to the throne. Halfway around the world, Athan Dakar, the youngest son of a ruthless general, is a fighter pilot longing for a life away from the front lines. When Athans mother is shot and killed, his father is convinced its the work of his old rival, the Queen of Etania—Aurelias mother. Determined to avenge his wifes murder, he devises a plot to overthrow the Queen, a plot which sends Athan undercover to Etania to gain intel from her children.Athans mission becomes complicated when he finds himself falling for the girl hes been tasked with spying upon. Aurelia feels the same attraction, all the while desperately seeking to stop the war threatening to break between the Southern territory and the old Northern kingdoms that control it—a war in which Athans father is determined to play a role. As diplomatic ties manage to just barely hold, the two teens struggle to remain loyal to their families and each other as they learn that war is not as black and white as theyve been raised to believe.
