This is book number 3 in the Iskari series.
Kristen Ciccarelli’s bestselling Iskari series comes to a captivating end with this final companion novel to The Last Namsara, which Tomi Adeyemi, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Children of Blood and Bone, calls “one of my favorite books of all time.”
At the end of one world, there always lies another. Safire, a soldier, knows her role in this world is to serve the king of Firgaard—helping to maintain the peace in her oft-troubled nation.
Eris, a deadly pirate, has no such conviction. Known as the Death Dancer for her ability to evade even the most determined of pursuers, she possesses a superhuman power to move between worlds.
Now Safire and Eris—sworn enemies—find themselves on a common mission: to find Asha, the last Namsara. From the port city of Darmoor to the fabled faraway Star Isles, their search and their stories become woven ever more tightly together as they discover that the uncertain fate they’re hurtling toward just may be a shared one. In this world—and the next.
