There is no innovation that will ever spring from the minds of men that will not eventually be used for slaughter and control.
Tevanne City just barely survived the most recent disaster, and with everyone (at least for now) safe, Sancia and her friends focus on breaking up the monopoly on scrivings (magical writings).
Which (unsurprisingly) leads to a lot of corporate sabotage.
“Remember the plan,” said Sancia.
“I just also remember there’s a lot of spots in the plan that say, ‘Sancia improvises a bunch of shit.’ Which is not, you know, comforting.”
And just when they celebrate the success of their wildest mission…the worst happens.
An old enemy has decided to resurrect an ancient evil. And evil so great and terrible that all life becomes at risk.
It’s up to Sancia and her crew to save the world. Again.
“You know, for people who do a lot of work to avoid having laws,” he told the captain, “you certainly do seem to invoke a lot of them when it’s to your benefit…”
Oh my gosh. I absolutely LOVED this book.
Shorefall is such a wonderful continuation of The Founders Trilogy – I’m so excited that the energy from the first book was brought to the second.
I am SO in love with this world – their wild, complicated magic.
I’ve never thought I’d ever get so into a world’s magic system – and yet here I am. Just soaking up all the glorious details.
I adored the characters of this book – Sancia and co. are so incredibly real! Their struggle and heartbreaks really brought this one to life for me.
All in all, I’m ecstatic about this book and I cannot WAIT to get my hands on book 3!
A huge thank you to the author for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review
