“Your land is not the one you take, it is the one you die for.”
Still reeling over her discovery of a staggering secret about her closest ally, Keera has no time to rest. She and her fellow rebels plan a desperate rescue mission after King Damien takes one of their own hostage.

Opening the kingdom’s magical seals has transformed Keera in ways even the wisest Fae elders could not have anticipated. With the kingdom’s Halfling population suddenly posing a risk to the crown, the land is plunged into violence as the king begins a new blood purge.  
Keera and her allies gather an army to meet Damien’s forces in a final confrontation of epic, and tragic, proportions.  

The epic final installment in the Halfling Saga will thrill fans of Melissa Blair’s lush, action-packed, romantasy series.

“Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass.” —BUZZFEED

“Readers who enjoy a messy main character with a redemption arc and  rich world building will embrace this fantasy debut.” SOUTH SEATTLE EMERALD

“While still full of action and intrigue, Blair’s fantastic second book in the gripping 'Halfling Saga' gives space for more introspection as Keera searches for answers about her family and her magical abilities and realizes that she’ll need to rely on others to achieve freedom for herself and all of the Halflings.” Library Journal (Starred Review)

“The second installment in Melissa Blair’s Halfling Saga will undoubtedly take BookTok by storm all over again with its political intrigue and plotting.” Paste Magazine
