ImageThis final book in Lu’s Legend trilogy has all of the intrigue, action, and danger found in the first two volumes.  June has been chosen by new Elector Anden to serve as one of three Princeps-Elect, his closest government advisors.  Meanwhile, Day is acting as a commander in the military, but suffering from severe headaches and black-outs as a result of the experimental tests run on him by the government.  Day and June have not seen each other since the conclusion of Prodigy, and now June is urgently requesting to see Day.  However, despite his continued love for her, the favor June has to ask might be too much….  Like Lu’s previous books, this one is intelligent, fast-paced, and heartbreaking.
