Nocturne, a wilderness of eternal night.
Solis, a wasteland of endless day.

Nazafareen is a Breaker, a mortal who has the rare ability to shatter spell magic-although her power carries a high price. With the memories of her former self erased and nowhere else to turn, she comes to Nocturne hoping to start a new life under the triple moons of the darklands.
But when an assassin forces Nazafareen to flee to the sunlit mortal city of Delphi, she finds herself embroiled in a deeper mystery whose origins lie far in the past. Why was the continent sundered into light and dark a thousand years before? And what really happened to the elegant but ruthless creatures who nearly reduced the world to ashes? The new Oracle might know, but she's outlawed magic and executes anyone caught practicing it. Nazafareen must hide her powers and find a way out of the city-before it's too late.
As the net slowly tightens, something ancient and vengeful begins to stir in the arid death zone called the Kiln. A dashing daeva named Darius is pursuing Nazafareen, but so are a multitude of enemies. War is brewing again. Can she stay alive long enough to stop it?

Nocturne introduced me to a new world of epic proportions, and don't think I've even seen it all yet. The Fourth Talisman appears to be a continuation of a previous series - there was mention of events that I hadn't read yet. And while it made me curious, I don't feel like it took away from my enjoyment of the current adventure. (But I do want to go see what happened before now.) The world of Nocturne is divided by three elements and the people that have an affinity for manipulating them. Earth, Wind, and Water. Nazafareen has lost all her memories after an adventure in the Dominion with Darius (the previous series I think), and we find her struggling to accept her new life. But she hasn't quite left her old life behind. (And here I apologize because I can't begin to spell the names of the various elemental sects.) The wind people who live high in the frigid mountains are out for revenge - again something that happened in the previous series - but we learn just enough to understand their motivation. This revenge sets the stage for Nazafareen's adventure as she runs from her new community to try and keep them safe. Her travels take here to the land of Solis and the city of Delphi, and introduced me to Javid (who is amazing). The settings and characters really jump off the pages and I have already jumped right into the second book **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**
