the finish the Tears of Artamon trilogy. Two of the drakhouls, Gavin and Tielen’s emperor’s, work together to keep the Lord of the fallen angels from coming into the world. As a result, Kiukiu sends all the ‘eaten’ children peacefully into the after-life and because of their sacrifice, the drakhouls passover also and are at peace. An interesting trilogy, but not an author I have a desire to go out and read more of her stuff or talk about it to others.

a would-be emperor. A young artist, heir to a kingdom and a cursed power. A powerful scullery maid, who must compete with a Foreign Princess. Battling clans who hate each other with absolute hatred.

This is the backdrop of the story Sarah Ash begins to weave. Interesting, but to be honest, nothing really stands out to me from this book. I’ll finish the series, enjoy them, but probably never re-read them again.
