It was just okay. I like Anya Bast and was really hoping to like this one. I had a hard time getting into it. "Valerie" was really annoying me most of the time and I found myself not caring too much about their mission to uncover Sante's secrets. There was also lack of a world. It's taking place in this Chosen city haven, but the description of it is lacking. The betrayal is almost handed to you throughout the book. There's nothing that stood out and grabbed me or kept me intrigued.
