A young sorceress's entire life has been shaped to destroy the empire controlling her world. She could change history. But everything she thinks she knows is a lie. The sequel to the critically acclaimed Death Sworn will thrill fans of Leigh Bardugo and Robin LaFevers.

At seventeen, Ileni lost her magical power and was exiled to the hidden caves of the assassins. She trained the assassins in magic--and fell in love with one of them. And she discovered her entire life had been built on a lie. After all of this, she wants to see the truth for herself. She infiltrates the Imperial Academy of Sorcery. She will see everything she despises about the corrupt empire--its thirst for power, merciless control, and careless violence. But she also finds something she never expected--friends, and a place to belong. Ileni no longer knows whose side she is on. Leah Cypess spins an intricate and beautiful conclusion to Death Sworn.

Back cover copy

Ileni could change the world.

She could do what she has always been trained to do: destroy the Empire. Her people want her to. The assassin she loves--who is now deadlier than ever--wants her to. But now that she knows her entire life was built on a lie, Ileni needs to see the truth for herself. Is the Empire truly as evil as she has always believed?

The answers lie in the Imperial Academy of Sorcery, a place where danger and temptation sit side by side. If her true purpose is discovered, she won't escape alive. But once she discovers what the imperial sorcerers can offer her, she may not want to leave. Ileni has found the one thing she never expected--a place where she belongs.

Except, this place has its secrets, too.

The truth is never purely evil or purely good. And Ileni no longer knows whose side she is on.
