Summary

Alynah Commonborn no longer exists. 
Forged into a pawn to fight, detect poisons, and disconnect my soul, I am a concocted lie: decoy, princess, murderess, spy, with one truth left: greater loyalty to my family than my country. I play the overlord's heartless daughter to save their lives, but in so doing, I condemn my nation to an alliance that will destroy it. 
Then a ruthless foe takes me for his own agenda. I try to escape - to stop the coming disaster, but every attempt fails, and the stakes keep rising. I'm falling in love with my silver-haired captor, making it harder to fight him. Too many die for my deception, making it harder to believe in. And the ever spirits in the spirit realm keep reviving me from the dead, meaning more than my family's lives hang in the balance, and not only my people will break if I fail. 
But I am Alynah Commonborn - what's left of her - and I will not fail. 
WARNING: While the main character herself is not abused, some of the other characters in this book have been held as sex slaves and a few graphic memories from their pasts are relived through her mind.
