Supernatural powers have been outlawed for decades. Faeries are forced into slave labour, locked in St Angela Merici's Academy while they wait for their lifetime assignment, all thanks to Princess Evanna Reign's family. But life in the Palace isn't perfect, either. In fact, Evanna has become trapped in the world of British politics, imperial advancement and superficiality; forbidden from going beyond the Palace walls. Gathering the courage to escape her personal prison leads to her losing absolutely everything, more trapped than before. When she realises that the world is a lot darker than she thought, she knows she can't be satisfied with just surviving.
