Publisher's Summary

She's my last chance. Those four words echo in Violet Spencer’s mind, tugging at her curiosity even as rage builds within her.

Arbon Academy was supposed to be a bright new start. An opportunity for greatness, and something an orphan girl could only dream of. For a while there, it seemed to be exactly that.

But Violet's bright future is suddenly looking dim. Arbon Academy and Prince Alex are nothing but a facade. A trap.

In a sinister world of ballgowns and backstabbing, of perfumes and politics, of indulgent parties and illegal sword fights, Violet now faces the biggest challenge of all: recovering her shattered heart from the prince who crushed it.

Supported by her new friends, Violet wants to make Alex feel the pain of his betrayal. Prince Rafe wants nothing more than to help make that happen, but things aren't always so straightforward.

Don't break tradition.

Don't let them know you know.

Don't lose your heart...again.

These rules will keep Violet alive. But at what cost?

Completely entranced

This series is one of my favourites of this year so far and a definite reread/relisten-worthy series for sure.

I am completely and utterly enchanted by this world and even more by Violet and her friends. The intrigue, heat, the politics of this world and corrupted people gunning for more power,... I love it!

love this

I love the story. The narratives amazing. love shane east! my only issue is the main character. For being so strong and independent, she's a little whiny. also for the period and how she was raised she falls way to quick for the guys. but than continues on about protecting her heart. other than that flaw love her.

WICKED GOOD!

This series and the 2nd installment has been epic! Like I can barely get much sleep as I’m so addicted to listening! Great job to the author and narrators for this excellent installment, this is a series you will easily binge within a weekend (you can’t stop reading).

Easy listen but lacking depth

Is it a reverse harem if there are only two men? I think that's more of a menage or triad, but what do I know? Either way, I do like Rafe and Jordan and their relationships with Violet. Seeing a softer side of Rafe was nice and made him more likeable. Jordan is always sweet and I love how he treats Violet like she's precious.

These are short reads but all the action tends to be at the end. I feel like not much happened in this book, mostly just Violet avoiding Alex and getting with Rafe and Jordan. I need some depth, more than just surface plot. With the way this ends, I'm really hoping for a fun story in the final book.

The narration is great, especially Shane East's parts. I like that Audible puts in sound effects sometimes, like phone calls.

Great book

Love it! To the point where I couldn't sleep until it was finished.
The cliff hangers, the revelations are done so well that you can't help but exclaim out loud.

Fantastic - the narration amazing

the narration keeping the same voices for each character is fantastic, makes it an excellent listen and it isn't distracting.
