The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction--but assassins are getting closer to her door. Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic. Across the dark sea, Tané has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel. Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

I loved this book so very much.. Finished almost half of it, and I loved the way how the secrets are gradually revealing.

This is a solid, stand-alone fantasy book with a fairly typical good vs evil plot. It's refreshing in that it is feminist and that homosexual relationships are normalized. The world-building is good--the mythology, in particular, is interesting--but at times, the characters feel flat. Read this one if you liked the Neverending Story or want fantasy with equality.

The sheer scope of Shannon's storytelling is amazing. Gorgeously written, complex, and...there are dragons!
