But magic has returned to the world—abruptly and with frightening force—and Ivariel takes that profound change as a sign that it’s time to keep a promise she made to the sisters she left behind. Ivariel must leave the safety she’s found and return to face the horrors she fled.
As Ivariel emerges from hiding, she discovers that her vicious brother is now Emperor of Dasnaria, and her much-hated mother, the Dowager Empress Hulda, is aiding him in his reign of terror. Worse, it seems that Hulda’s resurrection of the tainted god Deyrr came about as a direct result of Jenna’s flight long ago.
It’s up to Ivariel—and the girl she stopped being long ago—to defeat the people who cruelly betrayed her, and to finally liberate her sisters. Determined to cleanse her homeland of the evil that nearly destroyed her, Ivariel at last returns to face the past.
But this time, she’ll do it on her own terms.

Was this really the ending? I mean everything was wrapped up with a nice bow on it. So all these journeys are over? I am sad, I am also happy to have an ending at last, but yes mostly sad. I will miss them all.
In this one, novella length. Ivariel is back, the lost princess Jenna who learned that women are not chattel and she created a new future for herself. And she is needed to bring down an Empire. Together with Jepp, Kraal, Harlan, Karyn, yes yes a lot of oldies will help with bringing down Hestar.
And that is what this book is about. Rallying the troops for a quick coup.
I did like how it all came together, how the old couples are always shown, and how it was quick, cos sometimes you need a quick coup.We have had enough bloodshed through out the books.
But still, was this really it? I need more novels in this world :D
Oh, I did ask the author and she said we will see. Sometimes a world just feels like home
