    Dev is a smuggler with the perfect cover. He's in high demand as a guide for the caravans that carry legitimate goods from the city of Ninavel into the country of Alathia. The route through the Whitefire Mountains is treacherous, and Dev is one of the few climbers who knows how to cross them safely. With his skill and connections, it's easy enough to slip contraband charms from Ninavel - where any magic is fair game, no matter how dark - into Alathia, where most magic is outlawed.

    I loved this story! It was fast-paced, kept its sense of mystery and urgency to the end, and I found both of the main characters really likeable. The author has built an interesting world with an unusual take on magic. I couldn't stop listening and I find myself impatient for the next book!

    Dev is a desperate man. After narrowly surviving a smuggling job gone wrong, he’s now a prisoner of the Alathian Council, held hostage to ensure his friend Kiran, former apprentice to one of the most ruthless mages alive, does their bidding.

    I found this to be a worthy follow-up to the Whitefire Crossing. Lots of interesting and not altogether predictable things happen and the characters continue to develop nicely. I was particularly fascinated with the interplay between Dev and Kiran in the later parts of the book, when they’ve got this barrier between them and yet they somehow remain connected. There were a couple of nice twists toward the end - I got a little worried about how she was going to resolve it but the ending quite pleased me and made me look forward to the next one. This book asks an interesting question: Are we the sum of our experiences or only the sum of our memories of our experiences? I’m looking forward to finding out how she will answer this in the third book.
