In the final book in the New York Times bestselling Ruined series, the romance of The Selection and the epic stakes of Red Queen come together in a story of revenge, adventure, and unexpected love.
Emelina Flores and her sister, Olivia, were determined to bring peace to the people of Ruina. But as the war for liberation raged on, what triumph and freedom meant to Em and Olivia slowly changed. As Olivia’s violence and thirst for vengeance became her only ambition, Em was left to pick up the pieces.
But it’s not only Em who is upset by Olivia’s increased violence. Other members of the Ruined army are beginning to see the cracks, and soon a small group of them defects from Olivia’s army and joins Em instead.
The two sisters are soon pitted against each other in an epic battle for the kingdom and the future, and only one will win.
EMELINA FLORES, THE GIRL WHO KILLED THE PRINCESS, THE GIRL WHO DESTROYED LERA.
EMELINA FLORES, THE HERO. NO ONE WOULD BELIEVE IT.
A POWER THAT WILL DIVIDE THEM. A LOVE THAT WILL UNITE THEM.
Emelina and Olivia Flores might share the title of queen of Ruina, but they are far from allies. In fact, Olivia’s all-consuming quest for vengeance has forced Em and a small faction of Ruined to defect from her completely.
Instead, Em turns to the kingdom of Lera, where Cas, the boy she loves, sits on the throne. With Cas, Em begins to negotiate a treaty that will unite their people and bring an end to decades of fighting. But words and promises won’t stop blood and violence, and as Olivia’s army of violent rebels grows stronger, Em realizes that war with her sister is inevitable.
With the fate of Ruina at stake, the coming battle will pit queen against queen, sister against sister. Loyalties will be tested, relationships will be sacrificed, and only one queen will survive.
