    After overthrowing the cruel Queen Severine (Amber & Dusk, 2018), Mirage prepares to claim the throne as ruler of the Amber Empire. With the coronation around the corner, her dreams of a brighter future for her people should be falling into place—but things are far from perfect. The people don't trust Mirage's legitimacy as heir or her murky background, a religious fanatic is recruiting followers and turning them against her before she's had a chance to prove herself, and a distant cousin surprises her at court, threatening her claim to the throne. What's most troubling, however, is that Queen Severine still lives, stuck in a coma and haunting Mirage's thoughts. Mirage fears she won't survive the revolution she started, destined for the same bloody fate as her predecessor. The conclusion to Selene's duology grapples with strength, hope, and righting old wrongs, and while shock value drives much of the plot, complex characters and edge-of-your-seat action carry the series to a tantalizing yet gratifying end. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Lyra Selene was born under a full moon and has never quite managed to wipe the moonlight out of her eyes. When she isn't dreaming up fantastical cities and brooding landscapes, Lyra enjoys hiking, rainstorms, autumn, and pretending she's any good at painting. She lives in New England with her husband, in an antique farmhouse that's probably not haunted. Amber & Dusk was her debut novel.
