Publisher's Summary

On the eve of a recurring catastrophic event known to extinguish nations and reshape continents, a troubled orphan evades death and slavery to uncover her own bloody past - while a world goes to war with itself. In the frozen kingdom of Saiduan, invaders from another realm are decimating whole cities, leaving behind nothing but ash and ruin.

As the dark star of the cataclysm rises, an illegitimate ruler is tasked with holding together a country fractured by civil war, a precocious young fighter is asked to betray his family and a half-Dhai general must choose between the eradication of her father's people or loyalty to her alien Empress.

Through tense alliances and devastating betrayal, the Dhai and their allies attempt to hold against a seemingly unstoppable force as enemy nations prepare for a coming together of worlds as old as the universe itself. In the end, one world will rise - and many will perish.

    "Captivating & thrilling"

    I got this on the recommendation of a friend and I am SO glad I did! It was confusing at first, but keep going & you'll catch on. Some of the most amazing world building I've ever seen. This style reminds me of ASOIAF, but this author is more brutal than GRRM (in a good way!). I loved the array of perspectives-- people of all (& multiple genders), disabled folks, & different cultures. Loved the unique characters. Five stars for sure.

    "Good but with too much grimdark"

    The societies and world building is excellent most of the characters are not good people though, and there's a lot of pointless cruel happenstance described.

    Story
    "Very Interesting, but Fails to Maintain Momentum"

    Struggled after the half way mark when none of the events seemed significant in the bigger picture of the story arc, or maybe it's that the larger story arc wasn't established enough for me to understand the bigger picture.

    "Mind numbingly dull"
    What could Kameron Hurley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    spend less time lecturing about pro nouns, concentrate on a interesting story.


    Have you listened to any of Liza Ross’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    The narration was fine just the material was lacking


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none that I could find


    Any additional comments?

    One of the worst books I have ever had to persevere with
