Destiny and darkness collide in this romantic, sweeping new fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan, perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo. Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok's lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna's survival depends on the world believing she is dead. But that doesn't stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized. With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.

Professional reviews

"This dystopian mash-up of "Rapunzel" is jointly narrated by Phoebe Strole and James Fouhey. Strole reads from the viewpoint of Luna, a blind princess who has been raised in isolation in a woodland tower, and Fouhey performs the sections told by Fowler, a boy who has escaped the city in hopes of finding a land free of dwellers (zombies). After Luna's tower is breached by soldiers, Fowler becomes her protector as they flee their common enemies. Strole's theatrical performance brings drama to Luna's perspective, especially during the teens' harrowing experiences with the dwellers. Fouhey takes a more measured tone, highlighting Fowler's level-headedness and sense of responsibility. Despite the good action scenes and love story, the audiobook suffers from poor world building.
