<h3>The games are over. Let chaos reign.</h3>

Power plays, spilled blood, and romance abound in this thrilling sequel to the New York Times and #1 Sunday Times bestseller Immortal Longings, inspired by Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra.

Calla Tuoleimi has done the impossible. Against all odds, she won San-Er’s bloody games and eliminated her tyrant uncle, King Kasa – but at unimaginable cost. Now she serves as royal advisor to the newly crowned King August.

Only Calla knows it isn’t really him.

In a desperate feat, Anton took over Anton’s body to survive, and now he has no intention of giving it up. But when his first love awakens from a years-long coma and reveals a secret that threatens the monarchy, chaos erupts.

As tensions come to a boiling point, Calla and Anton must set their conflicts aside and head to the kingdom’s far reaches to prevent anarchy . . . even if their empire might be better off burning.
