Loyalties are tested when worlds collide...Every two thousand years, the dark star Oma appears in the sky, bringing with it a tide of death and destruction. And those who survive must contend with friends and enemies newly imbued with violent powers. The kingdom of Saiduan already lies in ruin, decimated by invaders from another world who share the faces of those they seek to destroy.Now the nation of Dhai is under siege by the same force. Their only hope for survival lies in the hands of an illegitimate ruler and a scullery maid with a powerful - but unpredictable - magic. As the foreign Empire spreads across the world like a disease, one of their former allies takes up her Empress's sword again to unseat them, and two enslaved scholars begin a treacherous journey home with a long-lost secret that they hope is the key to the Empire's undoing.But when the enemy shares your own face, who can be trusted?File Under: Fantasy [ Empire of Fire | Duplicates at War | The Royal Exchange | All Will Fall ]

Review quote

"Empire Ascendant is a masterful addition to the epic fantasy genre." "Recommended for fans of Game of Thrones and The Emperor's Blades. Intricate, unforgiving, and fascinating." "Empire Ascendant is not just a very good fantasy novel, but a great one - and one very highly recommended." "Everything about it is better, greater, grander than what came before." "If you love digging deep into worlds and relationships among divergent people, as well as exploring what makes people tick, then I think you'll really like this series." "It's epic in the truest sense of the world, and fantastic in a completely original and inventive way." "Kameron Hurley's Worldbreaker Saga blends science fiction and fantasy elements together in exciting and innovative ways"
