The empire is full of unrest.

Talise is ready to accept her new leadership roles but isn't sure how. It doesn't help that the emperor wants to take out enemy bases, yet he remains oblivious to the other conflicts around them.

The aristocratic citizens of the Crown are angry at the emperor for lying about their enemy. The middle-class citizens of the Gate are angry at the state of their once great empire. And the poor, desperate citizens of the Storm are beginning to awake after years of oppression.

Problems multiply when the enemy obtains knowledge about a mysterious amulet that has the power to destroy armies. With her heart still in pieces, Talise struggles to meet the obstacles ahead. But the truth soon becomes clear.

If she can't gain back loyalty from the citizens and find the ancient amulet, the empire will be lost forever.

Review quote

"This is a powerful and poignant addition to The Elements of Kamdaria series. I love how Talise is starting to see people for who they really are."

"I forgot how much I love this story and this world! Kay delivered another amazing book, and I am craving the next."

"I absolutely love that the conflicts in this series are not black and white. There is no simple solution to the many issues that plague Kamdaria, and I was especially excited to see an economic problem featured so prominently."

"The characters continue to grow, and they work together as a unit even more now. The details are impeccable. It's easy to imagine the world they are in."

So much in this story is about subtlety, subtle looks, subtle changes in expression or body language, subtle hints at wording or tone. Intriguing and nicely done."

"I had forgotten how much I love Talise! She is fearless. She is strong. She is kind."

"Kay L Moody has done it again."

"I love Talise as she settles into her role, as she accepts her new responsibilities, she is totally kicking butt!"
