The authors intentionally picked 2 older women as their heroines thus allowing them to infuse the writing with the wisdom and insights of experienced lives at the peak of their respective powers. Some rather magical yet believable events occur that propel the story forward in such a compelling manner that I couldn’t put the book down and found myself quickly reaching the end of more than 500 pages.

I enjoyed this book. I loved that the heroines of the story were mature women, not women in their late 20's or early 30's. Women who had children and even grandchildren. Women with careers. Women in marriages that may have gone stale. Women who may not be the most saintly, but weren't criminals, either. yes, this was a fantastical tale, but I still found myself feeling as though I could sit down with our heroines and have a conversation and be on a similar footing. I look forward to listening to the next book in the series!

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Our Lady, heal us …”

Sian Katte is a successful middle-aged businesswoman in the tropical island nation of Alizar. Her life seems comfortable and well-arranged…until a violent encounter one evening leaves her with an unwanted magical power.

Arian des Chances is the wife of Alizar’s ruler, with vast wealth and political influence. Yet for all her resources, she can only watch helplessly as her son draws nearer to death.

When crisis thrusts these two women together, they learn some surprising truths: about themselves, their loved ones, and Alizar itself. Because beneath a seemingly calm facade, Alizar’s people – and a dead god – are stirring…

“A powerful, thoughtful tale that stays with you long after you turn the final page.”

– Jim C. Hines, Hugo-winning author of Libriomancer
