But those eyes, dark and full of secrets, were still the same as they had always been, and they pulled him to her, just as they always had.

A Highside girl. Beaten. Murdered. Her body found on a Lowside dock. A magistrate comes looking for answers. For justice.

Alys trades and sells secrets among the gangs and factions of Lowside. She is a daughter of the underworld. Bold. Cunning. Free. When an old lover asks for help, she agrees. For a price.

Together, they travel into the dark heart of the underworld in search of a killer.

I was blown away by the detail and world building that was accomplished in so few pages. I didn’t feel like I was seeing a section
of a puzzle, more like I was reading a story that would contribute to a larger whole, but is compelling and rich all on its own.

Like with the previous Ascended books, I really love the characters and their dynamic. The female lead Alys is different from the heroines
in Reaper and Rend the Dark, but she’s just as complex and strong.
