“They’ve never found the body of the first and only boy who broke my heart. And they never will”

This is how Alessandra’s story begins. With murder. An act that will forever change her point of view of the world and the start of her ambitious plan to gain the power that she desires: 

-woo the shadow king

-marry him

-kill him and take his kingdom for herself

An easy task right? Wrong. What Alessandra didn’t take into account is the possibility of falling in love with the same king she wants to kill. But how can she not, when the shadow king is just as cunning, wicked and broken as her.

 But Alessandra is not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen, all while trying not to lose her heart.

Struggling between power-hungry ladies, mysterious disappearances, and the battle with her heart, will Alessandra lose her heart, will she succeed in her plan or will her castle of lies fall?

I recommend this book to those that want to start to read in english because the easy and clear writing of the author allows the reader to relax and entertain themselves, while exercising and improvising their english.
