She won’t hesitate to take on any demon from any of the seven hells, but none of them are as terrifying as the ones in her own mind.Baezha Ambrose is a gifted sorceress. Aleena Kurrin, her adoptive sister, is a gifted warrior.
Together they have faced countless foes, but now Baezha must face what she fears the most – her past. She’d fled her home town of Oleppo after her world ended in fire and blood and left her crippled with guilt. In the years since, the forces that destroyed her world have taken over Oleppo and grown stronger.
Now she must return to Oleppo to sort things out. The Watchers is a secret society of religious zealots fanatically devoted to the extinction of magic. Baezha’s extraordinary talent with magic makes her their most hated enemy, and they bring all of their obsessive fanaticism to bear on her. The Order of Entropy is a faction of sorcerers dedicated to destructive magic.
They see Baezha as an intolerably dangerous rival, and they know precisely how to hurt her. They know her sordid past better than Baezha herself.Crippled by guilt and fighting a two front war in a city that has made her very existence a crime, Baezha will need all the help she can get. She has but one ally, her sister Chosen, Aleena, who is as powerful in war as Baezha is in magic.
With Aleena’s help, Baezha shall bring a reckoning to the evil that destroyed all she loved. Or that evil will have its final victory over her. Though listed as book 2 of the series, this is a stand alone novel.
This book is amazing. I haven't read a new fantasy story this good in years. This is not the same old, same old. The basics of good vs evil are there but the author put them on steroids! I don't normally love very dark fantasy but this was incredible. The savagery was an integral part of the story, not thrown in to add gratuitous violence. I'm extremely impressed by this author and can't wait to read more.
