Publisher's Summary

Magic compels. We bleed. 

The captivating dystopian trilogy that began with Gilded Cage continues. In a modern Britain where magic users control wealth, politics - and you - an uprising has been crushed. In its aftermath, two families will determine the country's fate. The ruthless Jardines make a play for ultimate power. And the Hadleys, once an ordinary family, must find the extraordinary strength to fight back. 

Abi Hadley is a fugitive. Her brother, Luke, a prisoner. Both will discover that in the darkest places, the human spirit shines brightest. Meanwhile, amid his family's intrigues, Silyen Jardine dreams of forgotten powers from an earlier age. 

As blood runs in the streets of London, all three will discover whether love and courage can ever be stronger than tyranny. 

How do you choose when you can't save everyone? 

Look for all three books in the mesmerizing Dark Gifts trilogy:

  • Gilded Cage
  • Tarnished City
  • Bright Ruin

Praise for Tarnished City: 

“Highly recommended.... There’s an admirable level of world-building...with real moments of empathy and compassion [and] a true nail-biter of a cliffhanger ending.” (Fantasy Literature)

“Multifaceted complexity...lively, determined characters.” (Publishers Weekly)

Wonderful 2nd book!!

I loved the book, but I didn't like the narrator' "voices " she used for the characters. The book was great, though.
