Synopsis

A thrilling new fantasy series-full of deadly magic, double crosses, and a dangerous quest in a new world-from Sara Raasch, the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series.



Adeluna is a soldier. Five years ago, she helped the magic-rich island of Grace Loray overthrow its oppressor, Agrid, a country ruled by religion.



But adjusting to postwar life has not been easy. When an Argridian delegate vanishes during peace talks with Grace Loray's new Council, Argrid demands brutal justice-but Lu suspects something dangerous is at work.



Devereux is a pirate. As one of the stream raiders who run rampant on Grace Loray, he scavenges the island's magic plants and sells them on the black market. But after Argrid accuses raiders of the diplomat's abduction, Vex becomes a target. An expert navigator, he agrees to help Lu find the Argridian-but the truth they uncover could be deadlier than any war.



Benat is a heretic. The crown prince of Argrid, he harbors a secret obsession with Grace Loray's forbidden magic. When Ben's father, the king, gives him the shocking task of reversing Argrid's fear of magic, Ben has to decide if one prince can change a devout country-or if he's building his own pyre.



As conspiracies arise, Lu, Vex, and Ben will have to decide who they really are . . . and what they are willing to become for peace.

Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then: her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things, and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series, These Rebel Waves, and These Divided Shores. You can visit her online at www.sararaaschbooks.com and @seesarawrite on Twitter.

Customer Reviews

I’d been reading this book for WEEKS before the pace picked up and I kind of got into the book. And even after that, just like my experience with the other Sara Raasch book I read, Snow like Ashes, I ended up being confused amidst all the politics and descriptions and didn’t end up enjoying the book at all. THINGS THAT CONFUSED ME/ I DIDN’T ENJOY MUCH: 1. Adeluna: Honestly, I felt like I read the same line – ‘The Argridians are behind the capture of Milo Iberra and I intend to expose it to bring peace to the island’ – only about 800 times throughout this 400+ page book from Adeluna’s perspective. IT FELT SO LINEAR and REPETITIVE and honestly, it bored me. There was also, through the book, so much mystery surrounding who exactly she was in the revolution and well, WHY? I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND HOW A TEN-YEAR-OLD BECAME AN ASSASSIN, and SUCH a good shot, AND WHY HER FATHER WOULD TURN HER INTO ONE IN THE FIRST PLACE. I understand the spying aspect, because WHO WOULD SUSPECT A 10-YEAR-OLD, but why an assassin? ALSO, HOW DID HER MOTHER NOT KNOW ABOUT ANY OF THIS? It seemed, honestly, incredulous and unbelievable. 2. Magic: For so much talk of magic, the evils and the benefits consuming so much of the book, we learnt almost nothing of it in the book. The plants are so confusing, and if you ask me now, one day after I finished the book, I couldn’t name any of them for you. 3. The Church and Royalty of Argrid: I absolutely hated the king and the poisonous environment he fostered in his country. I didn’t understand how people believed his with NO QUESTION, especially when he changed his mind on the very thing he used as an excuse to burn thousands at the stake, including his own brother and nephew. I also didn’t get his motivation or grand plan and I’M JUST CONFUSED ABOUT THE AMBIGUITY OF IT ALL. Where did a legion of super soldiers COME FROM INTO THE PLOT? What are they going to be used for? Honestly, I had HIGH hopes for this book. It had been on my radar from early this year, and I was VERY much looking forward to reading it. Pirates and magic? WHAT COULD GO WRONG? And yet, everything did. I didn’t enjoy myself reading this book, and I probably won’t be picking up the sequel.
