Chima’s thrilling sequel to Flamecaster (2016) marks the second installment in the Shattered Realms series. Hardened warrior and reluctant princess Alyssa, heir to the Gray Wolf throne of the Fells, is embroiled in a seemingly endless war with Arden. After a brush with death, she convinces her mother to stage a pre-emptive strike. Her unexpected victories include capturing the attractive Captain Halston Matelon, a potentially useful pawn, and the magically talented street musician Breon whose songs have the power to ensnare. As the three conflicted characters are drawn together, they fall under the shadow of a new enemy that threatens to extinguish every last ray of light in the Shattered Realms.
