But what will happen to her moon-soaked moments in the arms of the King if Brix lets it slip that Cinder originally joined Onyx’s search for a future queen with the intention of murdering the King? While her brother’s closest, most brutal confidant, stews in a prison cell in the bowels of Breakwater’s castle, Cinder must recover from wounds by his hands.
She’s driven to find Brix’s cell, make him pay for the havoc he wreaked, slowly wrench answers from him about her own brother’s allegiances, and then silence him forever before he burns Tristan’s love for her to the ground.
Sometimes dark actions are required to protect dark hearts.
J. Darlene Everly is the author of the sci-fi and fantasy series, Cinders in Midnight Glass, The Grimm Star Saga: First Light, Crossroad Inn, and the upcoming The Grimm Star Saga, and the Major Arcana series. She lives with her family and a growing menagerie in Washington state. She has been writing and reading for as long as she can remember, even when her stories were only shared with her notebook and her pen. She took her Grandfather’s saying that “only the boring are bored” far too seriously and filled her every moment with worlds. With more stories coming to life every day, she hopes you’ll join her through the universes in her mind, and that you’ll never get bored either.
