It seems like Farideh and her sister, Havilar, are constantly thrown more than their fair share of challenges. They’ve escaped demons, imprisonment, a mad wizard, the wrath of deities–the list goes on and on. But just as they thought they might get some calm, their adopted father, Mehen, has been called back by the clan from which he was exiled years ago. While some expect it’s just a formality to inform Mehen of the death of his father, he knows they wouldn’t go through the trouble to call him back without also wanting something more. And when several young dragonborn are found dead shortly after the group arrives, they are quickly enlisted to help find the person–or thing–responsible.

I’ve been enjoying this series by Erin M. Evans quite a bit since it launched out of The Sundering. There’s something about Farideh as a character that just draws me in, and the crowd that surrounds her are certainly very interesting, as well. In this installment, we get a bit more detail of Mehen’s history, which I found to be enlightening, though there’s not quite as much action here as there has been in previous books. Even though there wasn’t as much in the way of direct conflict for Farideh this time around, the forces that are moving against her are still lingering in the shadows, and I expect that will all be coming to a head soon, as well. Definitely looking forward to seeing what happens next.
