Chasing rumors of a fabled city protecting a powerful artifact, Gyre comes face-to-face with his lost sister. But she isn’t who she once was.
Trained to be a warrior, Maya wields magic for the Twilight Order’s cause. Standing on opposite sides of a looming civil war, the two siblings will learn that not even the ties of blood will keep them from splitting the world in two.
Django Wexler is the author of the Shadow Campaigns novels. He
graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with degrees
in creative writing and computer science, and worked for the university in artificial intelligence research. He is also the author of middle-grade fantasy novels, The Forbidden Library, The Mad Apprentice, and The Palace of Glass.
This was a terrific read – the beginning of a new series by an accomplished writer.
Two siblings on either side of a long running conflict, one an accomplished thief, the other in training to serve the realm.
There’s adventure, battles, thrilling escapes and near misses, magic and monsters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, there’s humour and drama and it’s absolutely cracking. Don’t sit on this if you’re a big fantasy fan.
