Publisher's Summary

Tyrants cut out hearts. Rulers sacrifice their own

Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she's thrust into power, suddenly the queen of an unstable kingdom. Determined to find her father's killer, Hesina does something desperate: she enlists the aid of a soothsayer - a treasonous act, punishable by death…because in Yan, magic was outlawed centuries ago. 

Using the information illicitly provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust even her family, Hesina turns to Akira - a brilliant investigator who's also a convicted criminal with secrets of his own. With the future of her kingdom at stake, can Hesina find justice for her father? Or will the cost be too high? 

In this shimmering Chinese-inspired fantasy, debut author Joan He introduces a determined and vulnerable young heroine struggling to do right in a world brimming with deception.

didn't like it

although the 11 theory is quite nice, the main character is terrible useless for the all might queen the plot says she is... the author prepare the expectations for a trial, than there is no trial, prepare expectations for a speech then there is no speech, is overall frustrating and shallow book, the narrator is quite good.. . well whatever, conclusion: don't recommend but is not that bad. still thinking if I'll by the next book... just hope it is not a trilogy. u.u
