They are each other’s fiercest love, greatest danger, and only hope.
Séverin and his team members might have successfully thwarted the Fallen House, but victory came at a terrible cost ― one that still haunts all of them. Desperate to make amends, Séverin pursues a dangerous lead to find a long lost artifact rumoured to grant its possessor the power of God.
Their hunt lures them far from Paris, and into icy heart of Russia where crystalline ice animals stalk forgotten mansions, broken goddesses carry deadly secrets, and a string of unsolved murders makes the crew question whether an ancient myth is a myth after all.
As hidden secrets come to the light and the ghosts of the past catch up to them, the crew will discover new dimensions of themselves. But what they find out may lead them down paths they never imagined.
A tale of love and betrayal as the crew risks their lives for one last job.
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Hi, my name is Skye, and I would absolutely die for all of the main characters in this book. I love these characters so freaking much. Roshani has done a tremendous job portraying each character’s distinct voice; you always know whose POV you’re reading. Their arcs in this book are beautiful. Seeing how each of them handles grief was heart-wrenching and utterly relatable.
Roshani has outdone herself with this book. This book definitely didn’t succumb to the “second book” syndrome. In fact, I think it’s better than the first book! There was never a dull moment. I loved this book from start to finish. The setting, the world-building, and the magic are all fantastic. Roshani excels at painting a vivid picture in your mind when it comes to setting.
I will say my shipper heart was anxious throughout this whole book. However, I have a pretty good feeling that both of my ships will sail in the next book! Woo!
My only complaint is that I need the next book now because that ending was CRUEL. Do you hear me Roshani, that was cruel of you to do to me?! Grudgingly, I will admit that the ending was cruel in a beautiful way. That’s all I will say about it because of spoilers. If you’ve read this book and need to vent to someone, message me.
Honestly, I can’t say enough good things about this book. I definitely recommend this series to everyone. If you’re a fan of fantasy and history, then this book is right up your alley. Roshani does an amazing job of staying true to the time period and the setting while also throwing in her own unique fantastical elements.
