Tyrants cut out hearts. Rulers sacrifice their own

Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she's thrust into power, suddenly the queen of an unstable kingdom. Determined to find her father's killer, Hesina does something desperate: she enlists the aid of a soothsayer - a treasonous act, punishable by death…because in Yan, magic was outlawed centuries ago. 

Using the information illicitly provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust even her family, Hesina turns to Akira - a brilliant investigator who's also a convicted criminal with secrets of his own. With the future of her kingdom at stake, can Hesina find justice for her father? Or will the cost be too high? 

In this shimmering Chinese-inspired fantasy, debut author Joan He introduces a determined and vulnerable young heroine struggling to do right in a world brimming with deception.

Akira’s voice is the hottest thing I have ever heard in all my life. This whole story was enchanting, with suspense at every corner. However, it would not be what it is without Akira’s smoldering bad-boy merchant robber persona romancing Hasinna’s practical royal presence. Each of the characters are well written, with Li Lien’s comic relief shining in a tale full of plots, murders, and tragedies; Hasinna’s adept decision making and queenly restraint hailing as superior; and Akira’s witty and mysterious lone-wolf act crowning the whole with attractive charisma. I cannot tell you how each scene that Akira and Hasinna are inches apart, weakened and vulnerable to the other’s prying eyes or otherwise salaciously forbidden advances, renders me trembling and scorching hot to the bone every time. Also the plotting, scheming, and queenly decision-making/treason is great too. I love Nancy Wu and Joan He for this masterpiece of an art.
