The worldbuilding is wonderful, but because of the warfare and death this book is never going to be one of my favourites. The story takes place after Street Magic and before The Will of the Empress, so now we know why Briar has such bad dreams, and why Evvy values her new life so much.

I am very glad that Tamora Pierce is okay and back to writing again. This book was worth the wait.

As per usual, a true masterpiece! Darker than the usual stories she tells, this story has depth and truth to the ways in which we are changed by events and the roles we must play to overcome those challenges and survive in life. I only wish these books came more often! Truly delightful!
