'Kate Elliott is writing some of the best fantasy around' - Trudi Canavan
WILL WAR SET THEM FREE?
Trouble, treachery and magic seem to follow Cat Barahal wherever she goes. The Master of the Wild Hunt has stolen away her husband. The ruler of the Taino kingdom blames her for his mother's murder. An enraged fire mage wants to kill her. And Cat, her cousin Bee and her half-brother Rory aren't even back in Europa yet, where revolution is burning up the streets.
Rebellions to plot. Enemies to crush. Handsome men to rescue. Cat and Bee have their work cut out for them.
Elliott wraps up her marvelous Spiritwalker trilogy (Cold Magic; Cold Fire) with triple helpings of revolution, romance, and adventure on an alternate Earth where elemental fire and cold mages vie for power, and revolution is in the air. Spiritwalker Cat Barahal is determined to rescue her husband, cold mage Andevai, from the Master of the Wild Hunt, but like everything else in her life this task won't be easy. Evading the forces of Taino prince Caonabo, who blames Cat for his mother's death at the hands of the Wild Hunt, Cat and her cousin Beatrice escape to Europa. Fed by the news that rebel general Camjiata is building an army to the west in Iberia, the Europan governments are arresting those who speak sedition. Hunted by the authorities, missing her husband, and caught up in rising flames of revolution, Cat is forced to become a double agent despite trusting neither side. Elliott pulls out all the stops in this final chapter to a swashbuckling series marked by fascinating world-building, lively characters, and a gripping, thoroughly satisfying story.
