After battling the impossible, Zélie and Amari have finally succeeded in bringing magic back to the land of Orïsha. But the ritual was more powerful than they could've imagined, reigniting the powers of not only the maji, but of nobles with magic ancestry, too.

Now, Zélie struggles to unite the maji in an Orïsha where the enemy is just as powerful as they are. But when the monarchy and military unite to keep control of Orïsha, Zélie must fight to secure Amari's right to the throne and protect the new maji from the monarchy's wrath.

With civil war looming on the horizon, Zélie finds herself at a breaking point: she must discover a way to bring the kingdom together or watch as Orïsha tears itself apart.

Even when we crash, we intertwine, and so goes the relationship between Inan and Zélie in this very fast-paced, moving story. The story is laid out from 3 points of view: Inan, Zélie, and Amari.
Magic has returned, but unintended consequences have occurred as a result. Not only did the Magi have access to magic, but also those nobles with magic ancestry. Now, Zélie is struggling to save Orïsha while the enemy (namely her mother and brother) holds just as much power as she does. The book is well-paced and hardly lets you breathe for an instant as we progress through the story. The chapters are nice and short, and each one moves seamlessly to the next.
With all the turmoil unfolding, you would think that would leave little room for love, but no, romance does brew. However, the cost of it becomes far more profound and heartbreaking than I think these characters expected. Then, just as you get the final pages and believe all is looking up, a plot twist leaves us hanging.
I was in utter shock, my heart rate was up, and parts of this book made me scream and cry. It's a fantastic story, but I am not sure where it is going with the third book. I will check it out.
