Title: Ruin of Stars
Author: Linsey Miller
Release Date: August 1, 2018
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
As Opal, Sal finally has the power, prestige, and most importantly the ability to hunt the lords who killed their family. But Sal has to figure out who the culprits are before putting them down. Which means trying to ignore the fact that Elise is being kept a virtual prisoner, and that the queen may have ulterior motives.
And the tales coming out of north are baffling. Talk of dark spirits, missing children, and magic abound. As Sal heads north toward their ruined homeland and the lords who destroyed everything, they learn secrets and truths that can't be ignored.
Yessssss. I really enjoyed the first book. It was layered and complicated and there weren't many good characters, there was a lot of moral ambiguity and layers of doing what was necessary to survive and move ahead and win. Yay to more of Sal being awesome and complicated, and yay to investigating the weird shadow-y possibly magicky stuff from the first book.
