Summary

The second installment of this highly-acclaimed trilogy, Traitor to the Throne throws the irrepressible Amani into a world of espionage, harems, and the Sultan himself.

This is not about blood or love. This is about treason.

Nearly a year has passed since Amani and the rebels won their epic battle at Fahali. Amani has come into both her powers and her reputation as the Blue-Eyed Bandit, and the Rebel Prince’s message has spread across the desert – and some might say out of control. But when a surprise encounter turns into a brutal kidnapping, Amani finds herself betrayed in the cruellest manner possible.

Stripped of her powers and her identity, and torn from the man she loves, Amani must return to her desert-girl’s instinct for survival. For the Sultan’s palace is a dangerous one, and the harem is a viper’s nest of suspicion, fear and intrigue. Just the right place for a spy to thrive… But spying is a dangerous game, and when ghosts from Amani’s past emerge to haunt her, she begins to wonder if she can trust her own treacherous heart.

Praise for the series:

‘Sheer escapism.’ Guardian

‘Winning.’ New York Times

‘Thrilling.’ Booklist

‘Hugely entertaining . . . breathless romance and show-stopping action sequences.’ Bookseller

Critic Reviews

Palace intrigue, military stratagems, even cosmic powers can't eclipse the complex tangle of love, loss, and loyalty in this Arabian Nights-inspired fantasy sequel . . . all building to a crescendo of heart-pounding—and heartbreaking—climaxes that will leave readers sobbing and desperate for the next volume. Superlative.

Booklist
Critic Reviews

Hamilton doesn’t shy away from the horrors of rebellion and war, but she also has an unflinching eye for the evils we enact outside of battles, the injustices, weaknesses, and betrayals that mark even regular life, and the way we must forgive or move past them in order to coexist. New readers will want to start with the impressive prior outing to understand this world, and then they’ll join the ranks of those eagerly awaiting the next novel, particularly given the dramatic, unforgettable end to this one.
