Red Queen meets These Violent Delights and Iron Widow in an epic anti-colonial YA fantasy from debut author Molly X. Chang.

'A thrilling tale of magic and murder, intrigue and betrayal.' Cassandra Clare

'Hauntingly poetic prose' Xiran Jay Zhao

'A tender and brutal fantasy that will leave readers breathless and eager for more' Rebecca Ross


Known as The Girl Blessed By Death, Ruying wants only to survive, but when her magic is discovered by an enemy prince she must decide if saving her family is worth betraying her country.

For as long as Yang Ruying can remember, the empire of Er-Lang has been occupied by Romans, whose advanced science and military make them Gods. But these Gods are not kind. Their only gifts- cruelty, opian, and destruction.

When Antony, the second Prince of Rome, uncovers Ruying's power, she becomes what she always feared- the perfect assassin. As tensions mount and rebellion stirs, Ruying can no longer deny that peace is a death sentence for Er-Lang. A death she may not be willing to deliver.
