In a few short weeks seventeen-year-old Mila has gone from being Ludmila Novakova, pampered daughter of the High Chancellor of Bohemia, to becoming a traitor escaping the palace at midnight in her wedding nightgown. Her country is in chaos, an army is marching from Austria, and revolution is a breath away.
Mila is caught in the middle, between the man she loves—Marc, the son of a blacksmith and a leader of the rebellion—and the murderer the Church calls her husband. Even as she flees with Marc into the heart of the resistance, where the suspicions of angry citizens make her every palace-born habit a danger, she knows he hasn’t told her everything.
But Mila is keeping the biggest secret herself: she is the heir to the throne, the daughter of embattled King Rudolf and Princess of Bohemia. The truth will turn the fury of both sides against her, leaving Mila alone to win her country’s freedom—and her own . . .

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
I absolutely loved this book! The plot always kept me interested and on the edge of my seat.
I love how developed these characters are. The 2 villains are so cruel and unforgiving. The major characters are loving and yet, they sacrifice so much for their cause.
My favorite character is Ludmila because even in the face of torture, poverty, and death she never strays from her cause. She does what is right even when its not easy.
The setting of this book is beautifully described. The whole book is detailed perfectly and overall, this is definitely a 5 star novel!
I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories of torn kingdoms, war, romance and action.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 14 and up.
