Summary

Summary

The delicate peace between Wizards and the underguilds (Warriors, Seers, Enchanters, and Sorcerers) still holds by the thinnest of threads, but powerful forces inside and outside the guilds threaten to sever it completely.

Emma and Jonah are at the center of it all. Brought together by their shared history, mutual attraction, and a belief in the magic of music, they now stand to be torn apart by new wounds and old betrayals. As they struggle to rebuild their trust in each other, Emma and Jonah must also find a way to clear their names as the prime suspects in a series of vicious murders. It seems more and more likely that the answers they need lie buried in the tragedies of the past. The question is whether they can survive long enough to unearth them.

Old friends and foes return as new threats arise in this stunning and revelatory conclusion to the beloved and bestselling Heir Chronicles series.

Horn Book Review

A spate of murders threatens the fragile truce engineered among the five "Weirs" (magical guilds divided by talent) and the "savants" (those with non-traditional talents) in previous volumes. Chima excels at placing multifaceted characters in situations that make black-and-white morality impossible. Prejudice, redemption, star-crossed romance, unmasked secrets, and long-deferred closure on previous generations' tragedies get their due in this impressive series resolution. (c) Copyright 2015.
