The thrilling third instalment in the Millennium's Rule series by international number one best-selling fantasy phenomenon Trudi Canavan. Five years have passed since the Rebels confronted the Raen. Five years, in which the boy Rielle rescued, Qall, has grown up among the Travellers, with no memory of the life that was stolen from him. Five years of chaos, barely contained by Baluka and the Restorers. Worlds are at war, some overrun by deadly machines, some drained of magic by power-hungry sorcerers.

Life should have been easier for Sonea, now that Regin ignored her and the rest of the novices treated her with wary respect, but she cannot forget what she witnessed in Akkarin's underground room, or his warning that Kyralia's ancient enemy is watching the Guild closely.

Yet whenever their paths cross, they complement each other perfectly and before long become devoted friends. But then a vital mission goes wrong....

This books twists and turns; took me to a world I crave. WWll women were amazing and capable. I listened expecting to be a voir into the female pilots perspective, but was surprised by the spy plot. Genius to entwine the pilot with the intelligence officer and to make one try to rescue the other. ..brilliant. For me the surprise was the..reason I cried (don't want to ruin it for other listeners). The brother and mothers response to hearing what had happened. .wasn't expecting that. I gave 4 stars, because there was way to much crying from the pilot, when she was a brave character. Why do authors always feel the need to create hysterical women (I hate that).
