Noble-born Sophia Stratton meets her ‘Evil Twin’, but to save her twin’s life, she might have to descend into evil herself.

Sophia and her family have lost everything—their titles, lands, and wealth—and now, after Sophia inadvertently kills a man, she must flee to Hartford and find a way to return her family to their former glory. She finds Viola, a vicious, low-born woman of ill repute living in her aunt’s house. Viola, upon learning of Sophia’s destitution, attempts to lure Sophia into a life of deplorable activities, but Sophia resists involvement with Viola until she learns a shocking truth: Viola is her identical twin. Sophia must find the strength to forge a relationship with someone of despicable morals while maintaining her own dignity.

Together, they stumble upon the Sea Key that reputedly unlocks an artifact of unimaginable power, but the Emperor of their country’s most feared neighbor captures them. He offers Sophia a choice: hand him the Sea Key—which would lead to her country’s downfall and thousands of deaths—or he will kill Viola, the twin Sophia never knew she had.
