Olivia Geroux knew her king was reluctant to marry her, whatever the negotiations had arranged. But she never expected to find handsome, arrogant King Rowan obsessed with his stepsister instead. And before she can determine what course to take, she overhears her greatest ally plotting to murder the princess. Olivia must act quickly - and live with whatever chaos results. As the assassin hunts his prey, a magic mirror appears to show Olivia the three paths that open before her....
If she hesitates only a moment, the princess will die - and she will become queen. If she calls for help, she will gain great power - but she must also thrust away her own happiness. If she runs to stop the murder herself, she will know love and contentment - but her whole country will suffer. As she lives out each path, her wits and courage will be tested as she fights to protect her people, her friends, and her heart. And deciding which to follow will be far from easy....

Bad or worse? A choice.
I have no objection to a book without a "good" ending. I do not mind books with themes like self loathing and abuse.
What I /do/ mind is a book that tells you all the possible outcomes are set, you cannot change them, oh and by the way, they suck. There is no sense of agency despite this being a book about choice, and I will most definitely not be continuing reading.
But it was a very well narrated trainwreck, so all props to the narrator for their performance.
