Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own. To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons.

Each sister has to fight for it. And it's not just a game of win or lose... it's life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins. The last queen standing gets the crown. If only it was that simple. Katharine is unable to tolerate the weakest poison, and Arsinoe, no matter how hard she tries, can't make even a weed grow.

But with alliances being formed, betrayals taking shape, and ruthless revenge haunting the queens' every move, one thing is certain: the last queen standing might not be the strongest... but she may be the darkest.
