When assassins ambush her best friend, the crown prince, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing her ability to perform all seven kinds of elemental magic. The only people who should possess this extraordinary power are a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light and salvation and a queen of blood and destruction. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven trials to test her magic. If she fails, she will be executed...unless the trials kill her first. A thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a mere fairy tale to bounty hunter Eliana Ferracora. When the Undying Empire conquered her kingdom, she embraced violence to keep her family alive. Now, she believes herself untouchable--until her mother vanishes without a trace, along with countless other women in their city. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain on a dangerous mission and discovers that the evil at the heart of the empire is more terrible than she ever imagined. As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world--and of each other.

This is a book that has received a lot of hype since copies of arcs were sent out in a book subscription box. While I love fantasy, I was hesitant to pick this book up because of the fact that I have trouble appreciating books that have a lot of hype. Nevertheless, this one sounded so good that I really just wanted to get a copy of it as soon as possible. So far it's pretty good. The world building is a little on the complex side so I'm having some trouble following along, but hopefully it will get better.

"Harkan ignored the harsh edge to her voice. He kissed her wrist. 'Anything. You can hunt game. I'll teach you how to grow tomatoes. You can wear a straw hat.' He pressed his lips to her shoulder."
