Raised to take a bullet, Frey is the body double for her twin sister Rafia – the precious heir of the first family of Shreve – whose existence is a closely guarded secret. As Rafi was schooled in poise and diplomacy, Frey was drilled in weapons and combat to protect her sister from their tyrannical father’s many enemies. Frey becomes the perfect imposter, as elegant and charming as her sister when she is sent in Rafi’s place as collateral in a precarious business deal. But will Col Palafox, the son of a rival leader spot the killer inside her? Can Frey become her own person and risk everything in a rebellion?
