No longer a slave, and with the family out of exile, Aly’s job just got harder. She’s the spymaster for her little band of rebels, and getting and distributing information is her main job. She’s also got to smooth the way for a transition of power, which is harder than it seems.
Aly’s not the cocky little spoiled noble girl she was at the beginning of the series. Now, she’s fighting for something, and someone, other than herself. She’s experiencing love and hatred and betrayal, all mixed in together. And through it all, she’s got to keep her head because this whole rebellion falls apart without her.
