Iolanthe and Titus continue their mission to defeat the Bane in this striking sequel to The Burning Sky—perfect for fans of Cinda Williams Chima and Kristin Cashore—which Publishers Weekly called "a wonderfully satisfying magical saga" in a starred review and Kirkus Reviews said "bids fair to be the next big epic fantasy success."
After spending the summer away from each other, Titus and Iolanthe (still disguised as Archer Fairfax) are eager to return to Eton College to resume their training to fight the Bane. Although no longer bound to Titus by blood oath, Iolanthe is more committed than ever to fulfilling her destiny—especially with the agents of Atlantis quickly closing in.
Soon after arriving at school, though, Titus makes a shocking discovery, one that throws into question everything he believed about their mission. Faced with this revelation, Iolanthe struggles to come to terms with her new role, while Titus must choose between following his mother's prophecies—or forging a divergent path to an unknowable future.
LOVED this Sequel!!
Rarely do I enjoy a sequel more than the first novel in a series, but this was the case with this book. In this brilliant, action-packed novel, the author allows you to watch our hero and heroine fall in love all over again. The subtle humor and romance was spot on and I literally could not put this book down. Even after I completed the novel, I found myself going back and re-reading my favorite parts! I can't wait to begin the final book in the series!
