Library Journal Review

As novice Nona Grey moves into Mystic Class, the events of her last years (recounted in Red Sister) at the Convent of Sweet Mercy weigh upon her. She has lost one of her closest friends, seen the shipheart stolen by a failed assassin, and killed a man of means whose family is out for vengeance. Soon Nona will have to decide whether a life of service means a path filled with prayer or fight, but her dedication to the order is interrupted by the Inquisition led from afar by a queen seeking more power. With the religious order being used as a weapon against Nona, her friends and even her abbess, this clash of politics and power means difficult choices for all, including a young woman who will have to balance her fury and desire for revenge against loyalty to her order. VERDICT Vivid worldbuilding and fast-paced action enhance this powerful -coming-of-age story. Readers who loved Red Sister will find this second series outing even more compelling.-Kristi Chadwick, Massachusetts Lib. Syst., Northampton © Copyright 2018.
