Goodreads Summary:
Aurelia is the first princess born to the Renaltan crown in two hundred years, destined to fulfill a treaty by journeying to marry the next prince of Achleva – Renalt’s greatest enemy. Surrounded by spirits and dogged by accusations of witchcraft, the only thing that eclipses Aurelia’s apprehension of her impending wedding is her fear of those who’d kill her to keep her from it.

When an assassination attempt forces Aurelia to use forbidden blood magic under the eyes of the court, she is driven from Renalt by the witch-hunting Tribunal and a mob out for blood. To escape with her life, she must cast off her name and crown and take refuge in the land she was once meant to rule: Achleva.

Alone and unknown for the first time, Aurelia throws herself into studying the magic that might one day help her reclaim her old life, even as she begins to imagine a new one with a man who could never rule beside her. But no matter how hard she wants to move forward and forget the past, her fate seems to be inextricably connected to the leader of the tyrannical Tribunal, the unquiet ghost of a forgotten queen, and the answer to an ancient mystery, hidden deep in a crumbling tower and a cage of poison vine called bloodleaf.

Aurelia is an unwitting pawn in a centuries-long game of love, power, and war— and if she can’t change the game before the Tribunal closes in, she may face losses far more devastating than her crown.

Love the cover and curious about the story!
