Synopsis from GoodReads:

Dame Grace Hensley helped her brother, Miles, undo the atrocity that stained their nation, but now she has to deal with the consequences. With the power out in the dead of winter and an uncontrollable sequence of winter storms on the horizon, Aeland faces disaster. Grace has the vision to guide her people to safety, but a hostile queen and a ring of rogue mages stand in the way of her plans. There’s revolution in the air, and any spark could light the powder. What’s worse, upstart photojournalist Avia Jessup draws ever closer to secrets that could topple the nation, and closer to Grace’s heart.

Can Aeland be saved without bloodshed? Or will Kingston die in flames, and Grace along with it?

My Review:

I read and truly enjoyed Witchmark, the first book in this series, back in 2018 but that was during my blogging/reviewing break. I read this one and couldn’t remember much at all about events from the earlier book so I was pretty lost. There weren’t many contextual clues to help me fill in the blanks either. I do still like this world and the intrigue so I’ll continue with the series. I’ll try not to wait three years before reading the next book though.

  1. I’m currently reading Witchmark, and though I’m definitely enjoying it I can see where the details of the story and characters would fade over a year or more. Good thing I can move straight into books 2 and 3 when I’m done with the first one!
