Kaidu and Rat have only just recovered from the assassination attempt on the General of All Blades when more chaos breaks loose in the Nameless City: deep conflicts within the Dao nation are making it impossible to find a political solution for the disputed territory of the City itself.
To complicate things further, Kaidu is fairly certain he’s stumbled on a formula for the lost weapon of the mysterious founders of the City. . . . But sharing it with the Dao military would be a complete betrayal of his friendship with Rat. Can Kai find the right solution before the Dao find themselves at war?
I liked this book much more than the first one.
Since the characters were introduced in the first book, the action began right away. There were conspiracies and betrayals, which made the story very exciting.
We also learned more background information on many characters such as Rat. This explained how she came to be in the position she’s in.
There was a big cliffhanger at the end of the story, so I can’t wait to see what happens when the third installment comes out in the fall!
