From the author of The Queen’s Rising comes a thrilling YA stand-alone fantasy about the unbreakable bond between sisters. Perfect for fans of Ember in the Ashes, Sky in the Deep, and Court of Fives.
After eight long years, Evadne will finally be reunited with her older sister, Halcyon, who has been proudly serving in the queen’s army. But when Halcyon appears earlier than expected, Eva knows something has gone terribly wrong. Halcyon is on the run, hunted by her commander and charged with murder.
Though Halcyon’s life is spared during her trial, the punishment is heavy. And when Eva volunteers to serve part of Halcyon’s sentence, she’s determined to find out exactly what happened. But as Eva begins her sentence, she quickly learns that there are fates much worse than death.
I love a good book about sisterhood, and this one sounds like such a complex one. It also sounds like there is a good murder mystery aspect, and I’m fascinated by the premise of being a detective in a super fantasy setting. I haven’t been too interested in high fantasy novels lately, but this one – and that super intriguing cover – has me wondering what will happen and where this will go.
✔️ THIS BOOK IS ELSA APPROVED!
Elsa definitely knows a bit about the sisterhood aspect – I think she’s a bit more Halcyon in this book than our heroine.
