Below Forsaken Mountain, a revolution stirs with the aim to overthrow the tyrant king of Trollus, and Marc is the right hand of its leader. It's a secret more than one troll would kill to possess, which is why he must keep it from everyone, even the girl he loves. Since a tragic accident revealed her affliction and ruined her sister's chance at the throne, P�n�lope is an anathema to her father, the Duke d'Angouleme. Deeming her life worthless, he gives her one chance to survive: find proof that the boy she loves is a leader in the sympathizer revolution. Marc and P�n�lope must navigate the complex politics of Trollus, where powers on all sides are intent on using them as pawns, forcing them to risk everything for a chance at a life together. Except being together might be the greatest risk of all.
