Catalia "Cat" Fisa lives disguised as a soothsayer in a traveling circus. She is perfectly content avoiding the danger and destiny the Gods-and her homicidal mother-have saddled her with. That is, until Griffin, an ambitious warlord from the magic-deprived south, fixes her with his steely gaze and upsets her illusion of safety forever.
Griffin knows Cat is the Kingmaker, the woman who divines the truth through lies. He wants her as a powerful weapon for his newly conquered realm-until he realizes he wants her for much more than her magic. Cat fights him at every turn, but Griffin's fairness, loyalty, and smoldering advances make him increasingly hard to resist and leave her wondering if life really does have to be short, and lived alone.

I love fantasy, but I genuinely don’t remember the last time I read a book like this. Or, better yet, a book that would remind me of the time when I couldn’t read anything else besides this genre. I feel like I’ve waited an eternity for the emotions to resurface, but thanks to this author the magic is back, and the wait was worth it!

The author did a fantastic job combining Greek mythology and places with her own vision of Gods and rulers—some of whom are anything but what you’d expect them to be like—she created a charming world that is action-packed, full of intriguing plots and that also offers a different kind of romance. Cat and Griffin are amazing, their banters are a pure pleasure to read and the tension building is so well done that you might struggle at times because you are not sure if you want them to go for it, or make the wait last longer . . . Not many books make you feel like a masochist of some sorts, just for this you should be really intrigued!

Magic, Gods, mythological creatures, realms, and everything fantasy that comes to mind is in this book. Grab your copy, stick your nose in it—yes, sniff the pages because we all know that’s one of the biggest pleasures for a book lover—and let Amanda Bouchet enrapture you with a magically wondrous story . . .
