Summary

The Kingdom of Zangaria has fallen into civil war. On one side, King Randor and his forces, determined to impose his rule over the entire kingdom; on another, the noblemen who want to crush the king; on a third, Princess Alassa and the Levellers. 

Caught in the middle, Emily must steer a course between her loyalty to her friend, her duty to people who put their faith in her, and her fears for the future. 

But King Randor has unleashed forces even he may be unable to control....

75% boring 24% good followed by a BS cliffhanger

It wasnt a tough to get through as 13 or 15 but the story doesnt really get moving until the last 20%. The majority of the book has no antagonist except a mystery assassin that is never caught or revealed. Just a lot of the same serf/noble and Emily's friends with benefits situations. The cliffhanger epilogue is awful.

Jaw Dropping Ending

I loved this series. I hope to read and listen to more stories of Emily in the future.

I was surprised to find a few parts of the book that were surprises.

I like how Nuttall is able to describe a scene and make you wonder what might have caused it and leave you hanging for a bit so you can think of many possibilities and then let you know what happened.

i really enjoyed this story

Our favorite sorceress has really come into her own, and demonstrates the power to survive war and trickery with little rest and forces arrayed against her. i love strong female lead characters, and this series has been cultivating one for 16 books.

admittedly however, if the next book centers around solving the last problem identified in this book... well ill have to skip it.... which is really annoying because these books are already to far apart. i just find THAT particular plotline tired... and as common as white undies. hopefully it is fixed quickly, and most of the next boom actually progresses into some of the foreshadowing from previous books... such as training witb Void, dealing with White Council, starting the school, hunting other Necros, etc.

oh... and folks say CN is sick... so if that is still true... get better fast! Not only because being sick is no good :(, but you have to hurry up and make next book for me :D

The performance was awful

Tavia Gilbert can't read the main character lines without sounding like a hysterical panic attack.

As for the story, can you see hexes or not? You can dodge them as they go crackling by, but the MC can stand in the middle of 100 soldiers and hex them Without knowing it or seeing the spells.

Also the main characters constant desire to not kill people who are trying to kill her is so dumb. She lets them go and they try and kill her again and then she lets them go and they try to kill her again. If she wasn't such a whiney brat her friends wouldn't die and the "common" people also would not be fighting a war killing each other. But no don't kill the murdering mass genociding king let him live time and time again.

The worst book in the series!

I really liked this series. The narrator is ok; she gets the job done. But the story line was all over the place. And Emily!? What the heck was Christopher trying to accomplish with her in this book? I guess it moves the story along, but just barely.

Love these books (possible spoilers)

I love these books. These last two I love extra. I’m so here for the Cat/Emily romance and hope they make it and that he doesn’t act a fool after the end of this. I also hope void helps her get her powers back quickly. These cliffhangers man... they kill me. I bite my nails until the next one releases. Thank goodness Chris writes so fast haha. Keep up the good work sir!

Another a great SIM Book

This series manages to stay fresh as Emily continues her steady development as a sorceress. And she slowly changed her new world for the better.
