Ciardis Weathervane has one simple rule – win the first fight, then move on to the next. But she's finding out that the citizens of Sandrin have other plans in mind.
When she returns to the imperial capital city, she finds that nothing is as she left it. Only a week has passed and yet chaos reins. Vana Cloudbreaker has been attacked and surprisingly, she did not come out on top.
The woman Ciardis thought was invincible stands a broken shell of what she once was and Ciardis isn't entirely sure what or who was the cause of the fabled assassin's derailment.
To top it off, the revolutionary party is determined to make itself known, starting with a call for an impostor emperor to vacate his throne. They couldn't have chosen a worse time to start their revolution. Right when the noble societies at court are ready to throw their support to the prince heir and princess heir-in-waiting against the blutgott itself.
Now revolutionaries and courtiers are at odds, but even stranger—the duchess of Carne stands among the revolutionary guard. Ciardis is faced with the predicament of saving an empire and sacrificing a revolution, all while facing down a clock that has run out of the time.
The gods are here and there's nothing that she nor anyone else can do to stop them.
Yeah, loved reading this book, and just so soon after Sworn to Vengeance! Now I just want the next book now! Because yeah, this book was action packed, and it only took place in about three days-two back to back, and then a few passed over, and then the ending! Though I still have a lingering question-what did they do with the Muareg? Did I miss it, or did they just leave him there, his home?
This book picks up pretty quickly after the ending of Vengeance, they're on their way home. Of course, things don't go as planned, but things are looking a bit brighter for Ciardis and crew in terms of allies!
A few things went on in this book. Like Vana and how she changed after being in the emperor's clutches, and the memories that she gave back to Ciardis. Yeah, pretty important! And the importance of the ship, to the emperor and their plans of killing him, and the dragons. And I can't wait to see how that's going to play out!
Seven makes an unpleasant appearance, and I can't wait for them to kill him, because he totally deserves it after his actions in this book! And of course the emperor is evil and does some things that wreak plans and trust, as well as cause death, destruction and harm. Bad guy all the way!
That ending was pure evil! Such a cliffhanger, they're going into action against the Emperor, and they are on a good guy rampage! And if you haven't read this book, as a bit of a spoiler, the next book is called Sworn to War!
Absolutely loved this book, it was just so fantastic, and I can't wait for War, because it's going to be so epic!
