Long ago, the world was destroyed by gods. Only nine cities were spared. Separated by vast wilderness teeming with monsters and unimaginable dangers, each city is now ruled by a guardian—royalty who feed on mortal pleasure.

Born with an intuition that never fails, Calista knows her talents are of great value to the power-hungry of the world, so she lives hidden as a courtesan of the Baron of Archwood. In exchange for his protection, she grants him information.

When her intuition leads her to save a traveling prince in dire trouble, the voice inside her blazes with warning—and promise. Today he’ll bring her joy. One day he'll be her doom.

When the Baron takes an interest in the traveling prince and the prince takes an interest in Calista, she becomes the prince’s temporary companion. But the city simmers with rebellion, and with knights and monsters at her city gates and a hungry prince in her bed, intuition may not be enough to keep her safe.

Calista must choose: follow her intuition to safety or follow her heart to her downfall.

Breathtaking suspense and scorching romance meet in this immersive new fantasy from a mega-bestselling force, Jennifer L. Armentrout.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.


  • Good read but wish there was more action

    By hannah0301
    I enjoyed this book. It was well written for the most part, although I wish the author would have dove deeper into describing the characters and world building aspect. The book ended right as the action finally started and on a cliffhanger, so I’m a little sad we didn’t get to see more of a climax in the plot. Overall 4/5 quick 1-2 day read
  • 🌶️🌶️🫶🏼❣️

    I read this book cover-to-cover over the weekend because I couldn’t resist reading more. I’ve recommended it to my girlfriends and wholeheartedly hope the story continues!
  • Not too bad

    By trustmedanireads
    I enjoyed the plot but ofcourse it ended as soon as it was getting good .
  • Great Read

    This author always knows how to bring mystery, romance, and twists into one perfect book. This clearly ends on a cliff hanger, so I am assuming there will be another book to this and I CANNOT wait. I hope there’s many, many more books to this series. There is so much that could be done to expand this world and relationships that I hope come to life! Great book.
  • didn’t like LGBT themes.

    Was trying to pass the time waiting for another Maas book. At times just seemed cheap..too many porn like scenes. Main female character is bisexual and if you’re ok with that then great but not everyone is. Everyone is using her and she’s literally getting “fingered” by two men at the same time with one she doesn’t even really like. No self respect for the main character. Waste of time to read. The author’s writing standards have definitely dropped.
  • Not impressed

    By Dtlafave
    Far too short for the price I paid. Not enough plot development and characters are not as believable as in many of her other books. Was looking forward to reading this but was rather disappointed.
  • Everything she writes is magic

    By Booklvr39
    I too was enthralled from the first page.. this is an amazing start to a glorious adventure that I can’t wait to continue. I have read almost everything from this writer and I am never disappointed! Please give this a read, you will not regret it.
  • Yesss…..!

    By gilywooldridge
    Love it !
  • Omg! Seriously I think Lux universe just got TRUMPED

    By Ma'am hockey freak
    What isn’t there in this book and having to wait will be excruciating!! This is definitely a repeat read from mystery to adventure to lots of steam and omg spice to so many twist…I can’t believe I have to wait. The character are just so skillfully created and the dynamic of this new reality is just perfect and captivating!
  • Nope.

    Such a waste of time. There was nothing I enjoyed about this book except it being over. A DNF for sure.
