Publisher's Summary

Caina Amalas was a nightfighter of the ghosts, spies, and assassins of the emperor of Nighmar, and through her boldness and cunning, she saved the empire and the world from sorcerous annihilation. 

But the victory cost her everything. Now, she is exiled and alone in the city of Istarinmul, far from her home and friends. Yet, centuries-old darkness now stirs in Istarinmul, eager to devour the city and the world itself. And Caina is the only one who stands in its way...

Liked it overall

This book started off slow, but once it got rolling it very much got me interested. The characters were well done, the intrigue and action scenes were well-written, believable, and held my attention, and the narrator was well-suited to the material.

While the book is the first of a new series, it exists as the continuation of a long previous series, and thus I felt a little "behind" at times since I haven't read the previous stories. But the author did a pretty good job of making this one stand alone by summarizing the relevant history when needed without derailing the story. So my only (slight) criticism of the book really is the age of the main character. Maybe it would make more sense if I had read the past books, but holy cow it seems she's had quite the busy life to only be 22. Either she started extremely young in her life as a Ghost, or else it's been one crisis to the other to the next in an intense rapid-fire. Regardless, this is mostly just a small nit I'm picking that didn't lessen my enjoyment, just made me wonder.

I received this from the author as a free review copy in exchange for an honest review.

A decent bridge between series

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way impacts my opinion.

Caina, now in exile struggles to find purpose in her life while dealing with her past. To find some purpose she joins a circus as a knife thrower (as is one's wont). She learns that her landlady has severe problems (family taken) and Caina decides to revert to form an go on the rampage to rescue them.

A nice bridge between the previous series and the one to follow. The narrator did a solid job.

great story and narration

Even if you don't know about the Ghosts from the other series by the author, you can start this series and find a great story. There is plenty of action and adventure you'll get into and enjoy.

And the journey continues!

I really enjoyed this book, almost more than the first series! I liked seeing Cania in a new light, determining what's worth fighting for. This book packed a lot of adventure, but also a lot of self reflection and discovery. I enjoyed seeing her cope and viewing this creative world that Jonathon has created!
