Trust the enemy, or die.


To be a Marked means to be loyal and protected.

To be a Carved is to be the vilest of traitors.


Born branded as a Marked, Kaianne trusts the system. When her brother is born brandless, her misconceptions come crashing down. Now, an orphan and with only one uneasy ally, she turns to the Carved.


What she finds is purpose, a chance for revenge, and a family as strong as the one she lost. She will stop at nothing to protect them and further their growing rebellion.


If the talented disciples from the realms’ religious order cannot dissuade her, a prince certainly cannot stop her. Her once ally must either step aside, cut her down, or join her people’s crusade.


The Brand Edicts were meant to bring stability, but more people are born brandless as the decades pass. The Carved are growing more combative against the realms’ edicts. And like wounded animals, those in power are more dangerous than ever. It’s time for a change.


Please note trigger warnings:

Mention of Suicide, mentions of addiction, childhood trauma, a sex scene, an infant death, violence.


4 stars 

What a fantastic journey, it has a gret world building and interesting charaters.There is action and a slow burn romance to keep you on edge.

"I would rather be foolish in love than foolish on the throne."

 If you are looking for a fantasy , dark read with a fantastic magic system plus a smart and strong heroine this is for you!

About M.T. Fontaine:

Mari-Tris grew up as that kid whose thoughts always raced faster than what her mouth could spout out. That kid who woke up in the middle of the night to write down ideas. That left notes behind for friends and family to find.

She quickly discovered spun stories expressed her emotions far better than the spoken word. The rest was a matter of time, patience, and many deletions.

Mari-Tris lives under Spain’s gorgeous sun and warm weather, gorging on tapas and tea. Lots and lots of tea.
