Kazi and Jase have survived, stronger and more in love than ever. Their new life now lies before them—the Ballengers will be outlaws no longer, Tor’s Watch will be a kingdom, and Kazi and Jase will meet all challenges side by side, together at last.
But an ominous warning mars their journey back, and they soon find themselves captured in a tangled web of deceit woven by their greatest enemies and unlikeliest allies, a place where betrayals run deeper and more deadly than either had thought possible, and where timeless ambitions threaten to destroy them both.
If you have not read Dance of Thieves or The Remnant Chronicles, you will be spoiled.
This essentially picks up right where Dance of Thieves leaves off, with Kazi and Jase heading back to Tors Watch. The first book was a roller coaster of a ride but hold on tight because the sequel is just as mind-blowing.
Hell’s mouth and Tor’s Watch is such a fun place in the Remnant world, filled with unknown histories. Instead of our two lead characters being together, they’re ripped apart after an ominous message appears to them. Both are sided with unlikely allies as they try to get Tor’s Watch back under their command.
There’s romance, drama, plot twists and wonderfully written flashbacks that makes me long for more of Kazi, Jase and the whole crew. The pairings are perfect and it makes my heart happy when there’s the right amount of drama thrown in.
The ending was perfect and if this was the final farewell to this world, then Mary gave us all the amount of closure needed for both Kazi and Jase but with Lia and Rafe as well.
A few things I do want to point out was the way history tries to repeat itself in the book and how it’s a lesson that seems to run through all the novels. Another is that the ending did feel a bit rushed but I do still think it gave an overall nice conclusion.
Check out the entire Remant world and fall in love with it the way I have.
