Publisher's Summary

Orsina of Melidrie is a paladin of the Order of the Sun, sworn to drive out corruption and chaos wherever she finds it. She has been ordered to leave her home and travel around Vesolda in search of a great evil she is supposedly destined to destroy. But after two years of fighting monsters and demons and evil gods, she does not seem to be any closer to her goal - or ever returning home. 

Aelia is the Goddess of Caprice, the personification of poor decision-making. The Order of the Sun has classified her as a chaos goddess, meaning that her worship has been outlawed. During a run-in with Orsina, she is trapped in a mortal body, rendering her unable to leave Inthya. 

Aelia is found by Orsina again, but this time Orsina does not recognize her in her new body. So Aelia pretends to be a mortal woman who is fleeing an abusive family. Aelia plans to use Orsina as protection as she hunts down the magical relic that will free her from her mortal body. 

As Aelia and Orsina grow closer to one another, Aelia wrestles with her own desire to tell Orsina the truth about who she is, and her fear that Orsina will turn on her if she does. But the decision might not be hers after all, because their actions have not gone unnoticed by Aelia’s siblings.

The perfect Female X Female adventure/ romance.

I love this series and this is the best book in this series. I would even recommend reading/ listening to this book first since it greatly expands the world compared to the first book. The first two books do not have interacting stories so reading them out of order will not spoil anything.

Good book. Meh Narrator.

Narrator's high pitched rendition of stone of the characters highly irritating. The story is interesting and doesn't focus solely on romance which is good.

I cannot recommend this enough!

I wrote a glowing review on the first book, and I will happily take time to do so again for this book. While the two books aren't connected they take place in the same world. Only this one is a little better, if perfection can be added to. The characters are distinctive and unique. These two will have you falling in love with their personalities as the story unfolds. Please please PLEASE! Give this book a try you will not regret it. I usually don't react to books while I read, but this one had me laughing, grinning, and my heart breaking along with the characters. The story is seamlessly wound around a love story to make both have equal parts in this book that is perfectly coupled with the narrator. The narration is wonderfully done!! She has distinct voices for each character, you will never be confused about who is talking despite the multitude. Enjoy!

Excellent read

I was much more enthralled with this book as I was with the first—not to knock it, I love both. Strong character development but I would have liked more world-building, maybe I missed it but with traveling characters I like to know the climate/surroundings (e.g. desert, plains, mountains etc). I nabbed the next book, I’m sold on the whole series already.

Sweet, Wholesome, Fascinating

At first I wasn’t sold on the thought that the second book in this series would be totally unrelated from the first one (aside from being set in the same universe). But from Chapter 1 I was pulled in to the gorgeous universe of Inthya and the fascinating political and religious intrigue written by Effie Calvin, with a beautiful sapphic romance that makes my heart feel full! First, the romance: I love love love how it was written. It was wholesome and sweet and you really root for Orsina and Aelia. The split perspective was very effective. There was conflict, as with any good romance, but it wasn’t that horrible manufactured conflict you sometimes see in other novels; it felt realistic to the characters, setting, and their histories. There is a real lack of sapphic romance portrayed in general and this was a breath of fresh air. (I also love how the author specifically writes in and includes “neutrois” people!! And has side characters who are non binary!!) The world building is so interesting and I can’t wait to explore more of Inthya in future novels. It mixes old school, D&D style high fantasy with modern and accessible story telling, told in a way that draws the reader in with punchy, rapid paced action. I also liked the narration. Brenda Scott Waslzo (sp?) is an excellent narrator who does voices consistently and distinctly, and is an excellent actress. Sometimes it does feel like her tone of voice doesn’t quite match the situation, but this only happened once or twice and was hardly noticeable. Great book and great performance, really looking forward to more!!

So much Fun!

Loved listening to this book! I enjoyed it so much! The characters, especially Alia (spelling?), were so robust and interesting. I really cared about their growth and their journey. I can't recommend it enough if you're looking for a good adventure with wonderful characters. Brenda Scott Wlazlo does an excellent job of the voices, and creating this complex and beautiful world. Highly Recommend!

Romantic fluff, but cerebral, humorous fluff.

The world Effie Calvin has created is beautiful and nuanced. She introduces it so wonderfully through the eyes and minds of her characters. My only gripe is the narrator chooses some off-beat pronunciations of fairly ordinary English words.
