Poor child. Poor, wretched child. You have no idea what you’re up against. No idea how to stop me, do you?
Though it has been months since Charlaina—Charlie—defeated the tyrant Sabara and took control of the Ludanian crown, Sabara has not disappeared. The old queen’s Essence has fused itself to Charlie’s psyche and is viciously fighting to overpower Charlie.
Balancing her new duties as Queen and battling both Sabara’s voice and a growing resistance to her rule push Charlie to the brink of exhaustion. She wants to be the same old Charlie she has ever been but now she is Your Majesty.
As Charlie journeys to an annual summit to meet with the leaders of nearby Queendoms—an event where her ability to understand all languages is the utmost asset—she is faced with the ultimate betrayal. And the only person she can turn to for help is the evil soul residing within.

I am really excited about this one. I can’t believe I have to wait another year (or 5 months actually) to continue the story!

I loved The Pledge and thought it was a very good start to a new trilogy by one of my all time favorite author :).
