War has come to Galitha. While the Reformists continue to make inroads against the Royalist army, there are divisions within the movement. Sophie fears that her brother Kristos and her love Theodor will be lost on the battlefield—and in the case of Theodor, crown prince of Galitha, his fight will not end when the war is done. As Sophie uses her charm-casting powers to bolster their uniforms and supplies, she soon realizes that she may have to turn to curse-casting to tip the balance of power against the West Serafan magic allied with the Royalists. With the odds against them, the path to freedom is lined with defeats and deaths, and it will take all of Sophie’s intellect and skills to light them to victory.
VERDICT Miller’s conclusion to her French Revolution–inspired fantasy trilogy is filled with politics, ambitions, hope, and betrayal. Themes of immigration, women’s lives and rights, and democracy are woven into a delightfully intricate prose tapestry.
