Description

A killer adventure fantasy follow-up to HOPE AND RED, set in a fracturing empire spread across savage seas, where two young people from different cultures find common purpose.

Red is being trained as a cold-blooded assassin by the biomancers. As he becomes increasingly embroiled in palace politics, he learns that even life among the nobility can be deadly.

While terrorizing imperial ships as the pirate Dire Bane, Hope stumbles onto a biomancer plot of such horrifying scope that it makes even the massacre of her childhood village seem small in comparison.

With the biomancers tightening their grip of fear over the empire, Hope and Red struggle to fill their new roles and responsibilities, but the cost will be greater than any of them realize.

        January 2, 2017
        Lovers Hope and Red (introduced in 2016’s Hope and Red) return in the ingenious second installment of the Empire of Storms trilogy, set in a fantasy world where an empire spreads across many lands and seas. No easing into the reintroduction: the entire crew of an imperial frigate is slaughtered in the first chapter, their piratical killers identified by clothing alone. For readers who do not immediately recognize Bleak Hope, Brigga Lin, and the rest, a quick refresher with the first volume is probably a good idea. Skovron’s pedal really hits the floor around chapter four, as Hope and her MacGyver-ish crew battle to recover Red, who’s been taken by the biomancers. His durance appears light: Red has become Lord Pastinas of the imperial court, and is a favorite of the heir, Prince Leston. Red’s defiance of his loathsome masters is continually challenged by discoveries of the unsuspected holds they have embedded in his body and mind. Hope, gnawed by self-doubt, has the satisfaction of more straightforward enemies to skewer and allies to bind. The story is very much a middle volume, coming to a stop rather than a conclusion, but it’s a tremendously satisfying segment of the journey. Agent: Jill Grinberg, Jill Grinberg Literary Management.

        Starred review from March 15, 2017

        After trading his freedom to save his friend Hope, Red is now being trained by the biomancers to become an assassin. A skilled thief and con man, he believes his own talents at subterfuge will keep him alive, but he soon learns that palace politics is deadlier than he expected. As the pirate Dire Bane, Hope uses her secret Venchen teachings to attack ships that support the Council of Biomancers. When Hope and Red are finally reunited, they discover that surviving may be the least of their problems. Not only do they have to deal with a vicious murderer who strikes by night, but they must stop a plot that is more horrible than the one that destroyed Hope's home village. VERDICT Skovron's sequel to Red and Hope brings readers back to his intricate world of military action, magic, and piracy. The adrenaline-fueled conclusion to an emotionally engrossing tale leaves one eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.--KC
