Like flowers denied water, people are wilting under the emperor’s tyranny.
Rose will not rest until the Gardener is dead. But there are bigger battles to fight, and Rayce—leader of the rebellion and the only man Rose has ever loved—believes their best chance at winning the war is to join forces with her sworn enemy.
Saving innocent people is more important than her quest for revenge. But their new ally can’t be trusted—and he knows her darkest secret. One betrayal could leave the war and Rayce’s life hanging in the balance, and Rose will need to make the ultimate sacrifice to save them all.

If you could go back in time, what time period would that be? Why?
About a year ago, I would have a really hard time answering this question and to an extent, I still do. It’s easy to romanticize the past, but it really was a terrifying time. I don’t think I could go back to the past to stay having lived in the comforts of modern day (I live in Florida and love my air conditioning and running water!). But I know exactly when and where I’d want to visit for a little while!
A few months back, I took a two week trip to London and Scotland. Living in America, where most things are new, I didn’t realize or could never really picture well what it was like to walk the same streets that people walked hundreds of years before. Getting to walk on the uneven stones of Edinburgh castle, touch the walls of crumbling ruins and duck into abbeys that have been standing for thousands of years truly blew my mind. It was like going back in history. I could almost picture the extravagant dresses, the sound of bagpipes and lutes, the chatter of people. It felt like if I just touched the right place on the stone walls, it would reveal its hundred or thousand years old secrets to me.
All this to say, I would adore to go back in time to the Highlands and spend a few days. I really don’t even care about the time period. It would just be so lovely to see the cobble stoned streets lined with people that look like they belong in the same time period of the buildings surrounding them. Being able to experience that would be a truly magical experience.
