A DECOY trapped in a dangerous lie
A SERJAH searching for the truth
A PRINCE caught in a deadly game
A WORLD choked by secrets
Abducted during a devastating ambush, Clare is now the captive of ruthless mercenaries. Dragged through the wilderness while grieving heart-rending loss, she must maintain the illusion that she is the princess. Because if she lets the mask slip, even for a moment, the Mortisians will have no reason to keep her alive.
After arresting traitors close to the crown, Desfan fights to rebuild his court, knowing that the imminent arrival of the Devendran princess will further upset the precarious balance in Mortise. But Desfan’s world is rocked when he discovers a rumor that rewrites the most devastating event in his life. He will stop at nothing to find the truth—no matter where it leads.
As Grayson struggles to find his footing in Mortise, he discovers new friends and enemies. His life is further complicated by the tenuous alliance with his spymaster brother. With secrets deepening around him, Grayson must decide where his loyalties truly lie. Through it all, his heart remains in Ryden with Mia. Unfortunately, his love for her is no secret, and the Black Hand is a coveted weapon . . .
Eyrinthia holds its breath as allies and enemies collide. Secrets. Lies. Betrayals. Nothing will be the same.

I’m in total control of my emotions *sobs*, truly, I’ve never been better—What is going on? Why? Noooo . . . Did that really happen? But . . . what the actual heck! Dear Heather Frost, your writing skills can be brutally brilliant.

Saying this third instalment makes for a very intense ride is an understatement. Indeed, the reader can’t catch a break—just like every single character in the story—and, one distressing event after another, you are able to put a few pieces of the big puzzle together. If you pay attention to details in each instalment, you may guess something before it’s revealed—I did, and I jumped with joy when my theory was confirmed! Nevertheless, there are some dark twists that will inevitably end up catching you by surprise . . . Prepare yourself to question characters and their actions often, and to see the most evil family ever reaching a new level of pure viciousness, which could take a bit of your own sanity away in the process . . . Make no mistake, this is part of the charm of such a thrilling series, and what drives readers to want to fight next to their heroes. For Eyrinthia!

A new powerful addition to a remarkable series I strongly suggest you to read. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop, and you’ll thank the fates Frost for creating this captivating world!
