A pansexual bloodmage reluctantly teams up with an undead spirit to start a rebellion among the living and the dead, in this dark young adult fantasy by A.M. Strickland, author of Beyond the Black Door. She loves a princess. She's bound to a warrior. She must betray them both.
In Thanopolis, those gifted with magic are assigned undead spirits to guard them-and control them. Ever since Rovan's father died trying to keep her from this fate, she's hidden her magic. But when she accidentally reveals her powers, she's bound to a spirit and thrust into a world of palace intrigue and deception.
Desperate to escape, Rovan finds herself falling for two people she can't fully trust: Lydea, a beguiling, rebellious princess; and Ivrilos, a handsome spirit with the ability to control Rovan, body and soul.
Together, they uncover a secret that will destroy Thanopolis. To save them all, Rovan will have to start a rebellion in both the mortal world and the underworld, and find a way to trust the princess and spirit battling for her heart - if she doesn't betray them first.
