Rielle Dardenne has been anointed Sun Queen, but her trials are far from over. The Gate keeping the angels at bay is falling. To repair it, Rielle must collect the seven hidden castings of the saints. Meanwhile, to help her prince and love, Audric, protect Celdaria, Rielle must spy on the angel Corien—but his promises of freedom and power may prove too tempting to resist.

Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: she is the Sun Queen, humanity's long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption—fear of becoming another Rielle—keeps Eliana's power dangerous and unpredictable. With few allies in her corner, she races against time to save her dying friend Navi. Most importantly, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted by either embracing her mother's power or rejecting it forever.

Separated by a thousand years, connected by secrets and lies, Rielle and Eliana's fight continues amid deadly plots and unthinkable betrayals that will test their strength—and their hearts.
