Abstract:
The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable. Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra's family. And when Cyra's father, Lazmet Noavek'a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead--reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever. As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may--or may not--be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.

Booklist Review

After their daring escape at the end of Carve the Mark (2016), Cyra and Akos find themselves in a complicated situation. Ryzek is dead; his final act of cruelty stoked even further conflict with the Thuvhesit; and the resulting power vacuum and instability are opportunities wealthier, more influential civilizations are eager to capitalize on. Cyra and Akos, meanwhile, are in exile on a planet shrouded in darkness, trying to figure out their blossoming relationship as well as their own responsibilities as violence and interplanetary conflict loom ever closer. The expansive world Roth introduced in the series opener gets even bigger in this sequel, with a bevy of additional characters, deepened secrets, and complex interplanetary politics coming into play. Even for readers of the first book, it's a lot to keep track of and occasionally dilutes the overall plot arc, but Roth's fans will be eager for a conclusion to Cyra and Akos' story, and with neatly tied up loose ends by the finish, they are likely to be satisfied.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2018 Booklist
