Acclaimed author Sara B. Larson continues her enchanting YA fantasy duology with a timeless fairytale feel in an original voice.
The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.
In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.
Sara B. Larson is the author of the acclaimed YA fantasy DEFY trilogy (DEFY, IGNITE, and ENDURE) and the DARK BREAKS THE DAWN duology (DARK BREAKS THE DAWN and BRIGHT BURNS THE NIGHT). She can’t remember a time when she didn’t write books—although she now uses a computer instead of a Little Mermaid notebook. Sara lives in Utah with her husband, their four children, and their Maltese, Loki. She writes in brief snippets throughout the day and the quiet hours when most people are sleeping. Her husband claims she should have a degree in “the art of multitasking.” When she’s not mothering or writing, you can often find her at the gym repenting for her sugar addiction.
- What is on your nightstand? I have quite a range of things on my nightstand: my journals, my scriptures, and usually at least 3-4 books. Right now those include a parenting help book, Beach Read, Far From Normal, and The Girl From Nowhere. I’ve been on a contemporary kick recently, adult and YA.
- What author would you totally fan? I’m very lucky to have a huge author community here in Utah, so I’ve met and know many of the authors I admire most. But one I haven’t met yet that I would total fangirl is Laini Taylor. She’s my writing idol.
- What makes you cringe? I can’t handle when napkins or paper towels rip—it’s like nails on a chalkboard.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow? I’m a somewhere in the middle kind of girl. I usually know big plot points and go with the flow on how to get from point A to B to C.
- Is there a word you love to use? I love susurration. The way it sounds and its meaning.
