Two thousand years ago, the Prophecy of Fire and Light foretold the coming of the Queen Empress who would lead the Empire into a time of peace and tranquility. But instead of the coming of a prosperous world, a forbidden love for the Empress waged a war that ravaged the land, creating a chasm between the factions, raising the death toll of innocent lives until the final, bloody battle.

Centuries later, Alexandra, a twenty-two-year-old barista living in Boston, is taken to an unfamiliar realm of mystery and magic where her life is threatened by Reylor, its banished Lord Steward. She crosses paths with Treyan, the arrogant and seductive Crown Prince of the Empire, and together they discover how their lives, and their love, are so intricately intertwined by a Prophecy set in motion so many years ago.

Alex, now the predestined Queen Empress Alexstrayna, whose arrival was foretold by the Annals of the Empire, controls the fate of her new home as war rages between the Crown Prince and Lord Steward. Either choice could tear her world apart as she attempts to keep the Empire’s torrid history from repeating itself. In a realm where betrayal and revenge will be as crucial to her survival as love and honor, Alex must discover whether it is her choice – or her fate – that determines how she survives the Empire’s rising conflicts.


Where do I begin? This book was absolutely amazing and I am so happy that I don’t have to wait for the next book! 

Dalto does an amazing job at world building, balancing the story, and keeping you interested to the very end.

And speaking of the end…WHAT JUST HAPPENED??? Are they just….Is he really…what is going to happen?!! I need answers and I need them now.

It is a fast paced read, but in a way that you aren’t confused as to what’s going on. The only complaint I have is how quickly the lovers trope happened. 

“Oh I hate you for —” Turn page, “Get in my pants.”

But hey, it honestly works for this story.

For anyone that has triggers, this book may not be for you. There is a mildly graphic rape scene about halfway through. If you do have triggers and still find you want to read this book, read it with a friend, have someone on standby to talk too, reach out. You are not alone.


Rating: 4 out of 5.
