|Summary, etc.:|| Now firmly on the side of the Coracks, sixteen-year-old Kestra Dallisor plans to use the magic Olden Blade to kill the evil Lord Endrick, but when she fails, Endrick turns her into one of his Ironheart soldiers, without any memory of her rebellion, and bound to obey him, his spy within the Coracks; the rebel Simon is desperate to return her to the Kestra he loves, but he is reluctant to use the magic that might heal (or destroy) her--and neither Simon or Kestra is sure who they can trust among the rebels, because the whole rebellion is endangered by its increasingly murky politics.

In the opening of this middle book in the Traitor's Game trilogy, Kestra, the Infidante, confronts the megalomaniacal Lord Endrick but fails to kill him. Instead, he replaces her memories and charges Kestra with destroying the Corak rebellion. The rebels rescue Kestra when they see the plan has failed, but she acts as if they are strangers abducting her; worse, if Endrick's magic can't be reversed, a new Infidante can only be chosen if Kestra dies. Simon, her star-crossed lover, is naturally against this. While the Coraks bicker, the Halderians and Brillians, both uneasy allies, implement their own secret plans. The memory wipe keeps Kestra frustratingly devoid of agency for much of the book, and readers invested in her relationship with Simon will need patience, for he spends much of his time pining. The convoluted political maneuvering is compelling, with bloody results, and while Kestra's memory problem is solved, the result leaves her forever changed and in even more danger. Though uneven, this is an angsty, high-stakes setup for the final volume. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
