Tensions between the Faeries and Humans have been increasing rapidly. With Faeries being attacked in the streets by Human vigilante groups, it's only a matter of time before the government steps in. All it takes is one event: Emilie Blount, accused of a murder she never committed. Now, locked in a bitter war and conscripted into the army, Meera and her friends find themselves on opposing sides. The differences that never mattered to them force them apart. Now, she'll have to fight against the people she loves in a war she doesn't believe in. Her only comfort is speaking to Daria: the girl she'd always been afraid to admit her feelings towards. But now that she's a soldier and she could die at any moment, what better time to admit how she feels?
