Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire’s capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could’ve imagined. More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.
Mara knew her life in the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?
I read Forter's City of a Thousand Dolls last year and was immediately swept into the world she created. I knew she was writing another book set in the same world and was looking forward to it. Once the cover and synopsis were released, I became even more excited. The release date for Empire of Shadows is November 4, 2014.
