To conquer the power she bears, Elisa must journey from the hidden catacombs beneath her own city to treacherous seas and a long-forgotten island. With her go a one-eyed spy, a traitor, and the man with whom—despite everything—she is falling in love. If she’s lucky, she’ll return. But there will be a cost.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A superb fantasy built around an exceptional heroine…Carson avoids the dips that often haunt bridge books: expert pacing and well-drawn characters are masterfully integrated with Elisa’s continued growth as she deals with the shifting political situation, resulting in a dramatic and gratifying romantic novel that smoothly follows its predecessor.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Caron’s world building and character development do not lag in this middle part of a trilogy, and the heat of the love story makes this accessible even for those who have yet to read the first volume…Both religion and politics play roles that invite discussion, and Elisa, not only brave but brilliant, tracks her own growing awareness with a self-consciousness credible for her age.” Booklist
“Elisa’s narration conveys a sense of immediacy. Carson has created a vivid, palpable settings and complex multifaceted characters, and delivers a fast-paced novel that is emotionally charged, suspenseful, and filled with plot twists. The cliff-hanger ending will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next installment.” School Library Journal
“With danger, intrigue, and romance…the struggles of a seventeen-year-old girl to fit into an adult world of politics, greed, and intrigue are totally believable.” VOYA
“Intelligent and thoughtful…The lush details of this magical world are thoroughly intertwined with the profound religious faith of both heroes and villains, where each revelation leads to a crack in Elisa’s worldview…Newly discovered mysteries about this fantasyland’s history—not to mention the torments of unresolved sexual tension—will have readers clamoring for volume three.” Kirkus Reviews
