Face-to-face with her past, Audra Ellison now knows the secret she gave up everything -- including her memory -- to protect. A secret made vulnerable by her rediscovery, and so powerful neither the Historian nor the traitor Prince Nikola will ever let her live to keep it.
With Luka in the Historian's custody and the clock ticking down on his life, Audra has only one impossible chance to save him: find and kill the Historian and end the centuries-old war between the Progeny and Scions at last -- all while on the run as an international fugitive and struggling to control her growing powers.
With the help of a heretic monk and her Progeny friends Claudia, Piotrek, and Jester, Audra will risk everything she holds dear in a final bid to save them all. Love, action, and stunning revelations reign in this thrilling conclusion to The Progeny.
While this is a sequel, Tosca Lee has included a great recap of The Progeny at the beginning of this book so it could be read as a standalone -- though I think the story is so complex and fantastical that readers will get much more out of it if they've read The Progeny first. And, because of those complexities, I really appreciated the recap -- even though I read the first book. Great way to kick-start my memory and get all the players in place in my mind.
A fast paced thriller with so many twists and turns I'm still a bit breathless. Including a couple of sucker-punch moments towards the end. Lee has created an intriguing underworld - a community in constant danger of being hunted and killed. Audra and Luka find themselves thrust into the fray as they fight to end the conflict and bring longed for peace after centuries of carnage.
