Book 5 in the Fairy Queens Series.
By law, any child born in Idara is free, even if that child is born in a slave brothel. But as Cinder grows into a beauty that surpasses even that of her mother and grandmother, she realizes that freedom is only a word. There are other words too, stronger words. Words like betrayal and prison and death. And there are words even stronger than those. Words like courage and family and love.
In the end, if Cinder is to escape the fate of her matriarchs, she’ll have to fight for her freedom. Because true freedom is never free.
Out of all the books in this series i pretty sure this one is the one with the most emotional entanglements that rock you to the core. Their quite a bit of action and the way the whole final part of the story plays out is quite delightful. Their a bit more death then i liked and had hoped to see a bit more of the fairies then few we got to see. Amber did a great job with a story that talks about such a devastating things that happens in our world.
