“This book isn't quite as strong as the first one, but it's still a solid story. The survivors of the Mage Wars are trying to build a life for themselves in the aftermath of the cataclysm, only to discover that their very existence depends on the whim of a foreign ruler.
The company travels to the distant court to legitimize their claims on the land they now call their own and find themselves tangled up in strange foreign politics.
There are conspiracies, plots and lies, and our great heroes must find ways to overcome it all.
A good story, but somewhat bogged down in the middle by overwrought plot devices. Still a great read, though! ”
