Summary, etc.:
"When their father is murdered by imperial soldiers, two siblings set out on opposite paths--one will destroy the Empire forever and the other will save it--in this thrilling new Russian inspired epic fantasy from Jon Skovron. Sonya is training to be a Ranger of Marzanna, an ancient sect of warriors who have protected the land for generations. But the old ways are dying, and the rangers have all been forced into hiding or killed off by the invading Empire. When her father is murdered by imperial soldiers, she decides to finally take action. Using her skills as a ranger she will travel across the bitter cold tundra and gain the allegiance of the only other force strong enough to take down the invaders. But nothing about her quest will be easy. Because not everyone is on her side. Her brother, Sebastian, is the most powerful sorcerer the world has ever seen. And he's fighting for the empire."--Provided by publisher.

    A pair of siblings whose father was murdered by imperial soldiers have the same goal, to keep their people safe. Sonya, the elder, is possibly the last ranger of Marzanna, a follower of the old gods and protector of the people of Izmoroz. She aims to travel across the frozen tundra and make an alliance with the tribes of Uaine to liberate Izmoroz from the clutches of empire. Her younger brother, Sebastian, captured along with their mother by the very soldiers who killed their father, takes the only option open to him: he joins the Imperial army and uses his tremendous power with elemental magic in the service of those Sonya seeks to destroy. They are at the center of what promises to be an epic, world-changing battle, which begins with a fight to liberate the city of Gogoleth and drive the empire out. There are other plots afoot and more complicated background politics than either Sonya or Sebastian ever really acknowledge. The start of Skovron's Goddess War epic promises lots of adventure and machination. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
