He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless–and nearly grave–mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain … a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives. As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo–Kol doesn’t know which–had been planning all along.
