At the age of seven, Jude and her sisters were stolen away from the only life they knew by the man who murdered their parents. Taken to the High Court of Faerie, they grow up there, reminiscing about the human world. Ten years later, all Jude wants is to belong, but of course,
that isn’t possible as fey hate humans and use them as pets. The only way to belong in the courts is to enter the tournament and become a knight. With her sisters and ten years of training at her side, what could go wrong?

the consequences of her actions.
