This book is going to have a cult following when it releases. I was a little thrown in the start, but once we started to get to know both girls I was addicted. I didn't know which story I was enjoying more while I read.
I loved the back and fourth of each chapter, rotating between the girls, I felt like it was only giving us pieces, but by the end we had two complete stories and I was ALL OVER IT!
This was a story about fighting for yourself and those you love. Sometimes the bad guys have the best disguises. Sometimes, you have no idea you are playing right into their hands.
Even though you know the answers at the start of this book, by the end of it you are still yelling at the pages.
One of the best YA novels I have read this year!
Fans of Maas and her universe, Roar from Cora Carmack, and The Queen's Rising? Here ya go. You will love it.

Follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first.
A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other. (less)
