This is the type of fantasy I love finding. The first book as well as this second is a delight to read fulfilling my love of lyrical prose and insightful observation as well as original world building. It's also good to find fantasy that's not based on war and battles.

In the first book you're introduced to the younger sister of Mehr who is the main protagonist. This older sister is wed to the Empire's good luck god, Maha and then brings about his downfall. Since this false god's death the evils kept at bay by sacrificing the magic of the Amrithi has created a backlash. The Empire is now cursed.

This is now the story of the younger sister Arwa. She must discover her suppressed heritage and decide how much of her people's magic she is willing to give up to the bastard Prince of the Empire, Maha's heir. She must choose between her growing love for him and the possibility that he could use the deaths of her people; the desert Amrithi, to fuel the good luck of the Empire. Does she want to resurrect Maha she was raised to worship? How can she when the atrocities of genocide are its secret power.
