About the author:

Christine Amsden has been writing fantasy and science fiction for as long as she can remember. She loves to write and it is her dream that others will be inspired by this love and by her stories. Speculative fiction is fun, magical, and imaginative but great speculative fiction is about real people defining themselves through extraordinary situations. Christine writes primarily about people and relationships, and it is in this way that she strives to make science fiction and fantasy meaningful for everyone.

At the age of 16, Christine was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease, which scars the retina and causes a loss of central vision. She is now legally blind, but has not let this slow her down or get in the way of her dreams.

Christine currently lives in the Kansas City area with her husband, Austin, who has been her biggest fan and the key to her success. In addition to being a writer, she's a freelance editor, mom, and foster mom.

My Review:

Once again Amsden has created an intricate story that brings forward many concepts introduced in the Cassie Scot series & the 1st spin off. At the same time, new readers will enjoy this novel as a one of a kind tale that presents the world of magic in a completely new light. The exquisite world building brings together a vast array of concepts in a manner that is a joy to read. Intrigue and danger rule the day as Amsden continues to create one of a kind scenarios that will keep you captive.

I really enjoyed the character centric view of this story. The emotional and epically life changing aspects of Kaitlin’s tale shine through as a dark and eerie feel falls over the entire world. I loved how the different characters all came together throughout. The different personalities, races, and families all shine in their own ways, creating a complex cast with someone for everyone to love.

As a whole this was a fantastic tale that will be loved by readers of all ages.
