Zarya Rai has the power to touch the stars. It's a dangerous secret—she just doesn't know why. Held captive from birth for her protection, she escapes, seeking both the family she's been denied and answers for why she was locked away.
Freedom sets her on a path towards the teeming marble city of Dharati and a fiery passion with a blood-drinking rakshasa. She then begins to unravel the truth she's been shielded from: her magic is aligned with demons that are destroying the kingdom, and now she must resist their call.
As Zarya questions everything she thought she wanted, she learns family doesn't always come from blood, and falling in love may put her in the sights of those who want to steal her malevolent power for themselves.
To save a kingdom and keep her freedom, she must resist losing herself to the darkness.
Enchanted into an eternal slumber to escape an evil fae, Thorne Radcliff is awoken, not by true love’s kiss, but by a man set to kill her. So she does the only thing a princess can do: nails him in the balls and sticks a dagger in his throat.
But something has gone wrong because now her entire family isn’t waking up. While Ronan, the son of the man she killed, has just arrived on her doorstep.
Bent on revenge, the evil fae returns to claim the princess and kill everyone asleep in the castle. But Thorne strikes a bargain: three months to break the curse or she’ll end up as the star exhibit in the fae’s human menagerie.
But Thorne has no idea how to break a hundred year old spell that’s gone awry.
As time ticks away and she scrambles for a solution, her feelings for Ronan become entwined in her fate. Now, she must find a way to tell him the truth, save herself and rescue everyone she’s ever loved.
