The first book in an epic new series about a princess hiding a dark secret and the con man she must trust to clear her name for her father’s murder. 
 
In the Cyrilian Empire, Affinites are reviled. Their varied gifts to control the world around them are deemed unnatural—even dangerous. And Anastacya Mikhailov, the crown princess, is one of the most terrifying Affinites.

Ana’s ability to control blood has long been kept secret, but when her father, the emperor, is murdered, she is the only suspect. Now, to save her own life, Ana must find her father’s killer. But the Cyrilia beyond the palace walls is one where corruption rules and a greater conspiracy is at work—one that threatens the very balance of Ana’s world.

There is only one person corrupt enough to help Ana get to the conspiracy’s core: Ramson Quicktongue. Ramson is a cunning crime lord with sinister plans—though he might have met his match in Ana. Because in this story, the princess might be the most dangerous player of all.

Amelie is a diverse voice. She has an extrememly interesting background, and can speak eloquently about her childhood in China, as a Chinese citizen growing up in an International community.

This is a fantasy series that explores the very real and prevalent issues of human trafficking and forced indentured labor, both topics that Amelie has a history of in her own family.

This is a commercial read as well as a story with depth. It’s a fast paced page-turner with a message of tolerance.

This series is incredibly timely: it plumbs the universal themes of identity and acceptance, issues particularly important today.
