Summary

Eight years ago, the Sorcerer Void saved Emily's life.

To Emily, Void became, in so many ways, the father she'd never had. And yet Void kept a secret from her. To save the Allied Lands from themselves, to keep them from being destroyed by the necromancers or torn apart by their short-sighted rulers, he embarked on a plan to launch a coup and reunite the long-dead empire, a plan that can only end in total war or a permanent living death. He must be stopped.

And now, all that stands between him and his goal is his adopted daughter, Emily herself.

Gathering her allies, Emily prepares herself to return to Whitehall, to face the most dangerous opponent she has ever faced. But as she pits the new world against the old in a desperate bid to undo Void's work before it is too late, she is forced to confront a deadly truth...

Is it possible that Void might be right?

Barely understood reader.

The reader has such a husky voice that is is hard to understand reader. Should listen to readers before hiring them.

the only series that keeps me up at night

I find myself listening to a lot of audio books, but this series seems to the only one that can make me flip my sleeping schedule cause I can't put it down. Here i am at 4:30am writing a review .... work and the gym are going to be painful tomorrow. I'm going to be so tired.

inwardly

From thesaurus.com: Internally, within, at heart, deep down, privately, secretly, mentally

I can't BELIEVE how many times the author manages to use this word! I mean, it certainly doesn't completely stop my overall enjoyment (and regular relistening) of the series but my god pick up a thesaurus! How have his editors not picked up on this "quirk?" I wonder if fans of this series could recognize other fans by having a Tshirt that says "inwardly" on it. 😂
