I WILL TELL YOU THE SAME THING I TELL EVERY SLAVE.
THE RESISTANCE HAS TRIED TO PENETRATE THIS SCHOOL COUNTLESS
TIMES. I HAVE DISCOVERED IT EVERY TIME.
IF YOU ARE WORKING WITH THE RESISTANCE, IF YOU CONTACT THEM,
IF YOU THINK OF CONTACTING THEM, I WILL KNOW
AND I WILL DESTROY YOU.
Laia is a slave.
Elias is a soldier.
Neither is free.
Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those
who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk
the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all
they hold dear.
It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that
Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. The
family ekes out an existence in the Empire's impoverished
backstreets. They do not challenge the Empire. They've seen
what happens to those who do.
But when Laia's brother is arrested for treason, Laia is
forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels
who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to
spy for them from within the Empire's greatest military academy.
There, Laia meets Elias, the school's finest
soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants
only to be free of the tyranny he's being trained to
enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies
are intertwined—and that their choices will change the
fate of the Empire itself.
