Learn the rules of the game and then play better than anyone else.
Through a Faustian bargain, Edie Kramer has been pulled into the dangerous world of the Immortal Game, where belief makes your nightmares real. Hungry for sport, the leaders are always raising the stakes. To them, human lives are less than nothing, just pieces on a board.
Because of her boyfriend Kian’s sacrifice, she’s operating under the mysterious Harbinger’s aegis, but his patronage could prove as fatal as the opposition. Raw from her deepest loss, she’s terrified over the deal Kian made for her. Though her very public enemies keep sending foot soldiers – mercenary monsters committed to her destruction – she’s not the one playing under a doom clock. Kian has six months, unless Edie can save him. And this is a game she can’t bear to lose.
“[S]hould particularly appeal to fans of Ilsa Bick’s ‘The Dark Passages’ series and Mary Weber’s ‘The Storm Siren’ trilogy. This engaging nightmare will make even mature horror readers check under the bed at night.” ―School Library Journal “I DIDN’T EXPECT TO BE THIS HURT. I DIDN’T EXPECT TO BE THIS BROKEN. I DIDN’T EXPECT THIS BOOK WOULD MAKE ME CRY LIKE THIS AND TEAR MY HEART INTO PIECES.” -Fay @ Bibliophile Soprano “I like the way Edie evolves since the first book, she doesn’t want to let Kian protect her and she learns how to fight. She will do everything to protect the people she loves even if it’s very hard. The story is really original and I’m impatient to read the last book because the end has a lot of questions and no answers. Ann Aguirre is a talented woman who can write Young Adult, New Adult, Adult, fantasy, romance and everything else. She is an expert-writter in all genres of books.”-Carine at Ceres Books World
