In the third volume of the Fourth Talisman series, the hunt is on for the three daevas whose powers saved the world once before....

On the White Sea, realm of smashers and sea monsters, a ship is carrying Nazafareen and Darius to the Isles of the Marakai, where the wise woman Sakhet-ra-katme has guarded the secret of the talismans for centuries. But another is searching too, a daeva born in the brutal prison of the Kiln, who plans to use the talismans to free the Vatras and their mad king. When their paths collide at the emperor's lavish palace in Tjanjin, Nazafareen and Darius face their deadliest and most cunning foe yet.

In the mountain fastness of Val Moraine, the Pythia's minions are on the scent of another talisman, this one from the Danai clan. Trapped behind a thick wall of ice, everyone's going slightly mad-the perfect cauldron of suspicion and betrayal for Thena, who sees a chance to redeem her failure and bring the talisman back to Delphi. Then she'll be free to indulge her twisted obsession with Darius-and make him pay.

And in Samarqand, Javid is drawn into the treacherous currents of a royal succession. When the old king dies and his son takes the throne, the depths of the prince's depravity become clear. A journey north reveals the source of the spell dust he's addicted to-and leaves Javid with an impossible choice.

Getting to know more about the Marakai and Valkirin was amazing! And I finally found out for sure who these mysterious Talismans are and more about their legacy. I loved the way the various tribes' cultures are so diverse, and while I see their inspirations, they are still very unique and fun to visit. Events are unfolding rather quickly in both Nocturne and Solis, and the Vatras are breathing down the doors as they continue their hunt for the talismans as well. One of the things that stands out the most to me is the depth of the characters. Each stands out on the own and they develop and change, adapting to the story as things change around them. Nazafareen's purpose in the grand scheme of things is becoming more clear. And while she seems to be the "main" character, she could never get anything done without her friends and companions. Even friends that no longer travel with her, like Javid, still have major moments to play and I was really excited to see that they stay as a part of the story. **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**
