A truly satisfying ending across multiple fronts. And excellent payoffs for characters. Fans won’t be disappointed.

In New York City, magic controls everything. But the power of magic is fading. No one knows what is happening except for Sydney - a new, rare magician with incredible power that has been unmatched in decades, and she may be the only person who is able to stop the darkness that is weakening the magic. But Sydney doesn't want to help the system; she wants to destroy it. Sydney comes from the House of Shadows, which controls the magic with the help of sacrifices from magicians.

First - the world itself is an interesting take on magic, though the rules and applications of magic aren’t dived in too deeply

Second - the dialogue is frequently awkward and stilted

Third - the heroine of the story rampages through the book like a bull in a china shop. She has no real challenges, and her hardest struggles were behind here. It made the stakes of the book surprisingly low.

There are a few interesting characters, but most of them are flat to give all the room to Sydney
