Jade Fire Gold by June C.L. Tan

In an empire on the brink of war . . .  Ahn is no one, with no past and no family. Altan is a lost heir, his future stolen away as a child. When they meet, Altan sees in Ahn a path to reclaiming the throne. Ahn sees a way to finally unlock her past and understand her lethal magical abilities. But they may have to pay a far deadlier price than either could have imagined. TITLE: Jade Fire Gold AUTHOR: June C.L.

I loved the first part of the book and then felt like the second half was just okay. It had a tendency to cut away after emotionally intense moments. T
