After the indelible events of the quickening, it seems that all sisters have a good chance to win the crown. Katherine, the once weak sister, is now stronger than ever after returning from her mysterious disappearance. Meanwhile, Arsinoe is attempting to hide her secret talent and trying to figure out how she can use it to her advantage. Lastly, Mirabella, no longer the chosen queen, is faced with attacks that not only put her in danger, but those around her. As this Ascension year begins, all sisters are put to the test to see who will be the next queen of Fennbirn.
