“This standalone sequel to 2016’s The Jewel and Her Lapidary keenly explores a dark age when nearly all the magic gems in the former Six Kingdoms are gone… Wilde’s lean storytelling never missteps throughout Ania and Jorit’s dangerous chronological jumps… Readers who loved Jewel will be delighted by this outing.” – Publisher’s Weekly
