Gr 9 Up–This is the thrilling conclusion to the duology that began with Night Spinner. It continues the story of Imperial Army Commander Ghoa and Enebish, who is still reeling from the betrayals of everyone she held dear. Trekking across tundra with just her best friend Serik and a small group of Shepherds, Enebish is determined to make a stand against the Sky King, ruler of the Zemya nation. Meanwhile, Ghoa is facing Zemyan forces at the Ashkarian capital. After failing to escape, Ghoa is imprisoned and tortured. Each of these two young women seeks to bring peace to their nation while facing seemingly insurmountable odds. As with the first, this book is lyrically written. Enebish, who has the nickname Enebish the Destroyer, bears the scars that came with her warrior life through a disfigured arm and leg. Readers continue to see development in Ghoa’s characterization and find meaning behind her actions. This installment moves at a faster pace than the first and continues to develop the unique world found within. The magic system remains unique and the underlying themes of magic and religion prove to be the backbone of the plot.
VERDICT A well-written conclusion that will not disappoint fans of the first book.
