- “The richly imagined third volume of Wilson’s bestselling fantasy romance series draws readers into a complex web of ancient magics and looming war.”
~Publishers Weekly, King of Sword and Sky
- "...Wilson peels back layers of secrets surrounding the evil mages of Eld and their schemes to destroy the Tairen and the Fey, but the revelations never overwhelm the emotional intensity of Ellysetta and Rain's developing relationship or diminish the textured beauty of the writing. An exciting climax will leave fans hungry for more."
~Publisher's Weekly, King of Sword and Sky
- "...Worldbuilding – if I had the power, I would shout it from the rooftop that Wilson is the Queen of it and crown her so..."
