"Don't underestimate me, because I'll ruin you." • • • At first sight, Harry has it all: a country to rule, people following his every order, and way more money than he should. Alouette, on the other hand, has nothing but a sister and a secret organisation to call home. But soon she's thrown into the fancy life of the Palace, where deals are made in gold and tailor-made suits are as important as not forgetting your own name. When she and Harry cross paths, she discovers he isn't like she expected him to be - he's better, and so much worse. She was sent there to destroy him, but soon he finds a way into her mind and soul and she finds herself tangled in a web of mysteries and lies, and her only way out is Harry. The king of her chessboard, the director of her life. After all, every good player knows the best moves are the ones made when someone least expects them.
