Summary

Alizhan spent her life in service to Iriyat ha-Varensi as a mind-reading thief of secrets - until she uncovered Iriyat’s crimes. Possessed of both political and magical influence, Iriyat is almost untouchable. Alizhan has stolen a book that might prove Iriyat’s guilt, if only someone could read its encoded text.

Alizhan and her companion, Ev, leave the constant sun of their homeland to sail for the Nightward coast. They pin their hopes on His Highness Prince Ilyr of Nalitzva, a man rumored to understand any language, even one he’s never encountered. But Ilyr is not who he claims to be, and danger lurks in the long shadows of the glittering court.

Nalitzvan palace guards confiscate the book and throw Ev and Alizhan into prison. Their cellmate, a prickly and mysterious islander, offers to help them break free and steal it back. They reluctantly join forces and set off on a journey that will test their budding romance and take them farther into the Night as they race to stop Iriyat.

Really great follow up!

I was a big fan of the first book but there were times where the pacing felt a little.. off. In this second book it feels like that’s really improved!

I love the queer elements and the brewing polyam love story makes me feel so nice.

The only reason it’s not a 5 star story is that the end felt just a tiny bit sudden, it honestly feels like there books might have worked better as 3 parts of a single door stopper, but I understand why they didn’t do that

In the end great love story, fun intrigue, and really inventive world building!
