From internationally bestselling and award-winning author Melina Marchetta comes Book Two in The Lumatere Chronicles, her dazzling epic fantasy series.

'Marchetta again demonstrates her fearlessness in exposing humanity at its ugliest, but also at its noblest, as her damaged characters struggle to rebuild their lives. The precipice on which Marchetta leaves readers will have them aching-but also terrified-to discover what comes next.' Publisher's Weekly (starred review)

Fiercely loyal to the Queen and Finnikin, Froi has finally found his home in Lumatere ... or so he believes. But when he is sent on a dark and secretive mission to the rival kingdom of Charyn, nothing could have prepared him for what he finds in its surreal royal court. In this dangerous place he must unravel the mysteries of a half-mad princess ... and discover the truth before it is too late.

'For fans, this is a must-read; newcomers to Lumatere's story will dive in with enthusiasm.This epic has everything readers can ask for- great characters and a truly spectacular plot filled with romance, suspense, friendship and betrayal.' Kirkus Review
