Description

Romeo and Juliet meets The Godfather amid an exotic Sicilian setting—filled with shape-shifters and mortal danger—in this thrilling conclusion to the first YA trilogy by bestselling German author Kai Meyer.

Everyone close to mafia clan leader Rosa Alcantara is dead.

Everything she's ever known about her life is a lie.

Everywhere she turns there is a trap.

As the clock ticks down to their own destruction, it's a race against time for young lovers Rosa and Alessandro as they evade murderers, track down clues, and avoid a showdown with the man who wants them dead.

The pair must find out the truth behind Arcadia once and for all—but will it be the key to unlocking their freedom and future together, or the final step in bringing them to their knees?
