Avengarde is Taveol’s last refuge; a city of ice and blood, perched on the frozen edge of the known world, where he believes he is safe from the ghosts of his mercenary past. But when Taveol harbors a wounded Fae woman in the face of racial cleansing, the two outcasts are caught up in a decades-spanning conflict that threatens to tear the city and their lives apart, piece by piece. And when Taveol’s relentless nemesis appears in Avengarde, the paths to survival and revenge become that much harder to differentiate. Encircled by enemies old and new, Taveol must choose to either save himself or risk everything for the culture and people he has grown to love.

I'm not a fantasy reader typically, but once I picked up this book, I couldn't put it down. I loved the strong and relatable characters and the immersive atmosphere of the divided city. It's also refreshing to see such powerful and admirable female characters in Aerwyn and Imre. This book is so relevant to the challenges our society is facing today, and I think it can teach us all something valuable about overcoming differences and finding respect for each other.
