teaser 8:

My focus shrinks to the sound of the rain, the feel of my Swifter rumbling beneath my legs, and his sharp gaze poring over me, demanding answers. I open my mouth, but my throat closes over any words I might have spoken.

“Don’t enter,” he says again, this time a command. Somehow he inches closer without seeming to move, his knee sliding between the Swifter and my thigh, pressing into the tender area there. “Trust that I can lead us. That I am worthy of the throne. That I can win against the emperor.”

The rain has become a downpour, his knee a lightning bolt of white-hot energy. For half a heartbeat, I imagine pushing into him, feeling his hard body flush against me, his mouth hot against my lips, my hands twining in his hair.

For a crazy moment, I imagine the world isn’t ending.

about the book:

Terrorist. Rebel. Traitor.

One rash decision during the Shadow Trials left innocents dead, friends injured and hunted by the Empire, and Maia Graystone imprisoned in the Tower, forced to watch as the asteroid in the sky grows larger by the hour.

‪Unsure if Riser Thornbrook is alive, Maia must find a way to battle the Empire from within its own walls and escape so she can fulfill the promise to her father and stop the asteroid. But when she breaks free and joins the Rebel army Nicolai has gathered, she discovers she’s been branded a traitor. With war between the Rebels and the Empire looming, old alliances shifting, and suspicion hanging over her head, she must fight in the Rebel Blood Courts—and win command—to regain their trust.

Only problem is she must first defeat the reigning champion, someone she knows all too well.
