Publisher Review

A lightning rod around which storm clouds gather to burst and strike in the trilogy's final book next year * NPR's Best Books of 2016 * Utterly gripping . . . extraordinary . . . a complex and intricate world of warring powers, tangled morals, and twisting motivations -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Exceptional . . . those who anxiously awaited this sequel will find the only problem is that the wait must begin again once the last page is turned -- Library Journal (starred review)
