The Shadows Between Us

Always overlooked, Alessandra has had enough of standing in the shadow of her older sister. She wants power, and she knows just what she needs to do to get it.


Her plan is simple:

1. Make the king fall in love with her.

2. Get him to marry her.

3. Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.


But the newly crowned Shadow King may be a more difficult target than Alessandra bargained for . . .
